IPOs and placements

Access the primary market with traditional and ASX BookBuild IPOs and placements.​

Until recently, clients of online brokers were rarely able to participate in initial public offerings (IPOs) or other capital raisings (placements). CMC Markets Invest offers access to floats via both the traditional ‘broker firm offer' and the latest ASX OnMarket BookBuild facility.
