Purchasing Unlisted Companies

Yes, it's possible. That's called private equity.

If you have at least 50k to invest, then you can participate in so called Seed rounds, where private companies sell shares to private as well as institutional investors (so called VC, Venture Capitalists).

Once a firm has exhausted all their seed rounds, they typically do a Series A fund raising (and Series B/C), where they raise a few million $ before the big IPO, where you typically raise north of $100 million up to several billion $.

Easier option is to go directly to a Venture Capitalist firm, give them your money and tell them to invest it in private equity. But again, need 50k+ at least, before they even start talking to you.

Awesome, thanks so much for the response DSchenk. Might be a few more years for me yet then :)

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
