Questrade makes it easy for you to invest in IPOs.
An IPO (Initial Public Offering) is the process by which a private company goes public for the first time by selling shares of their company to investors. They are a type of “new issue,” alongside IPOs you can also purchase:
U.S. and international companies don’t typically file the documentation necessary to market a new issue in Canada. Therefore, most are not available to Canadian residents.
It depends on each IPO but, in most cases, you are able to share your shares immediately.
If the security complies with industry and Questrade guidelines for granting margin, then you can borrow on margin to participate.
