The best indices for IPO ETFs

How do I invest in stocks that have been listed recently?

An initial public offering (IPO) marks the first listing of shares of a company on a stock exchange. New or existing shares are listed on the stock exchange to be traded there in the future. Depending on the sector and the market period, investors hope for an increase in share prices right from the start. For almost all stock market indices the IPO event is not relevant: Usually, stocks are included in an index at least a few months after the IPO, and often in multiple stages and not at once. By doing so, index providers try to avoid the initial phase of orientation and high volatility.

A few index providers nevertheless offer access to shares that are in the early listing phase after the IPO. Participation in the subscription of new shares even before the IPO is not possible for passive investment instruments, though.

In this investment guide, you will find all ETFs that focus on IPOs.
