Interested in investing in Motif IPOs? You’ve come to the right place. Scroll down to see recent and upcoming IPOs on the Motif Investing platform.
Update 02/10/2017: Sachem Capital Corp. IPO prices at $5 per shares. First trade $4.90.
Update 02/10/2017: Sachem Capital Corp. IPO S-11/A updated today. Seeks to raise $15,000,000 in upcoming IPO. Estimated 02/10/2017.
Update 02/02/2017: The Snap IPO SEC S-1 filing finally released to the public. Click here to read it. No mention of Loyal3 or Motif Investing in the filing (as expected). The filing does contain a “Directed Share Program” which is the first clue we look for in the S-1 filing. But much to learn.
7% of shares of the Snap IPO are listed to be set aside in the Directed Share Program for “friends of our executive officers, which may include existing investors“. More parties can be added in this section in future amendments. Family, users, customers, partners, affiliates, and the general public are words often seen in this section. When the IPO date approaches, we’ll be watching this section closely. 5% is a more common number set aside for the Directed Share Program. So 7% is promising.
Expect to see many amendments to the Snap IPO filing over the coming weeks. Each time we’ll learn more. Seeing J.P. in there is promising for Motif, but not holding my breath at this point. I think Loyal3 is the more likely partner on this one, if they decide to offer shares to ordinary investors at all.
Update 02/02/2017: ENDRA IPO postponed.
Thank you for placing your conditional order for the ENDRA Life Sciences IPO. Unfortunately at this time, the Company has decided to postpone the IPO. As a result, your conditional order has been cancelled. Any reserved funds will be made available in your Motif brokerage account.
Update 01/27/2017: Hardeep Walia, CEO of Motif Investing was interviewed on the Lending Academy podcast. Check it out here.
They touch on IPOs and Hardeep mentions this:
We partnered with JP Morgan, we’ll be partnering with other underwriters later this year to give people access, but not just giving them access but making it very easy to go through an IPO process and get shares allocated.
We’ve already noted some other partners. Maybe some more big banks are in the works.
Update 01/26/2017: Another new IPO listed on Motif Investing. The Sachem Capital IPO (SACH) now expected on 02/10/2017. Sachem is a real estate finance company that expects to meet all of the requirements to qualify as a REIT after the offering. Read the prospectus here.
This looks to be another very small IPO at $15 million. The IPO is underwritten by Joseph Gunnar & Co., LLC and Axiom Capital Management, Inc.
Motif has broadened it’s reach to partner up with a number of underwriters on smaller IPOs. Something to keep an eye on.

Update 12/16/2016 4:00 pm: Trivago posts a 7% one-day-pop on its first day of trading. Bookmark here to keep track of the performance of this stock and all other Motif IPOs.
Update 12/16/2016 11:00 am: Trivago opens trading at $11.20. Trades into the $12’s early in the day. Congrats to all parties involved, including Trivago, J.P. Morgan, and to Motif Investing for completing their first IPO on the new platform.
Received allocation of Trivago IPO shares from Motif Investing around 8:15 am via email. My allocation is as follows:
- Requested – $500
- Received – 12.47 shares @ $11/share
- Amount Received – $137.17
- Allocation percentage – 27.4%
Update 12/13/2016 4:20pm: Trivago IPO was available on the Motif Investing platform for less than 30 minutes after an email to current customers (who expressed interest in IPOs by joining the Motif IPO email news list). The email arrived around 2:35pm-2:40pm EST. Obviously, Motif had a severely limited number of shares to allocate.
As explained in my Free eBook, you always need to reserve first and read the prospectus later. You can always back out. I was able to reserve and fund $500. Now time for due diligence!
On October 21 of 2015, Motif Investing announced that the company is entering the expanding IPO access marketplace, alongside its exclusive partner, J.P. Morgan. Ordinary individual investors are now able to invest in Motif IPOs before the newly issued stocks begin trading on the public exchanges.
Motif has joining Loyal3 in this space, a company that has been providing IPO access to individual investors since 2013. I’ve been following Loyal3 IPOs since the beginning. Check out a history of Loyal3 IPOs here, showing each company that has offered shares on the platform and the stock performance since the IPO.
Time will tell when we’ll see the first Motif IPO. If you have any additional insight, please feel free to leave comments below or contact me.

From the Top
Motif Investing Founder and CEO Hardeep Walia had this to say in a press release:
Any individual investor, regardless of account size or length of relationship, now has the opportunity to participate in big-name IPO transactions.
According to the press release, Motif IPOs will be “beginning soon”. I translate that to mean there’s at least one in the pipeline. Investors can invest with a minimum of $250. The cost to buy into IPOs is zero. No word in the press release on maximum investment amounts.
None of this is new as we know Loyal3 blazed this trail. But that doesn’t make me any less excited.
According to Seeking Alpha, J.P. Morgan “owns a piece” of Motif Investing. It continues to say that “Likely upcoming offerings … include Uber, Airbnb, Dropbox, and Pinterest.”
How to Invest in Motif IPOs
Here at Access IPOs, I’m extremely excited by this news. Access to IPOs for small-time investors (like you and me) is a beautiful development in the markets. We can now participate in the type of investing once reserved for Wall Street’s most exclusive customers.
Our readers have had lots of success investing in IPOs already at Loyal3 and look forward to more at Motif Investing. If you’re interested in the IPO process, you can read two reviews I’ve written on the subject. First is the Dave & Buster’s IPO which took place on Loyal3. Second is the Lending Club IPO which occurred at Fidelity. Both articles go through the IPO process and will help you prepare for upcoming events.
If you’re interested in investing in Motif IPOs, the most important step is to open a Motif Investing account today.
What’s also cool about Motif Investing is you can essentially create your own mutual fund and invest in 30 stocks for one small fee. Or invest in “motifs” that other members have created. You can also invest in individual stocks for just $4.95. Motifs of up to 30 stocks cost just $9.95 to trade. Click the banner below to learn more.
