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 :)

    • Thanks for your reply, I find dukas copy is great for forex, but the Wall Street index is proprietary to IG so the equivalent Dukas index is not close enough for my needs sadly. I have a node JS system receiving the feed from IG and am using Python for the rest API, I really need the tick data though, I was hoping some kind soul had recorded it for a few years and wouldn't mind sharing  
    • Hi, I normally download data from this free service. https://www.dukascopy.com/plugins/fxMarketWatch/?historical_data If you are familiar with any coding language you can request data from the IG API. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=552 The smaller time frame you can get from there is (minute).
    • hi  fully agree to this senario of today . I had good respect for IG.but not anymore after this. they answered the phone after 30 minutes and I lost nearly ONE hour of Trading . I am definately going to OPEN another account  with another Broker and Split the Business between two. IG makes hell of Money from my account . The Management might wake up when revenue goes down . Loyalty to just One broker is not a good idea, If IG breaks down I can straight away deal with other broker . I am sure they are not going to compensate all the customers for todays breakdown .
