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 had lots of success investing in IPOs in the now defunct Loyal3 as well as 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.
