What pre-IPO means

Pre-IPO investments mean investing in private firms several months or years prior to their listing. We select the best companies from Silicon Valley which have basically set the groundwork for becoming publicly-traded within the next 1-3 years. These companies may be larger than many publicly-traded ones and come with a valuation of over $1 billion.

Investment period

Until so far such pre-IPO investments have been accessible only to major investors, the entry threshold was from $10 million. We at United Traders made pre-IPO investing possible for everyone. The minimum investment is from $10.

Pre-IPO vs. IPO

Percentage of applications fulfillment

Share allotment means the percentage of share allotment you get with your application. The more people subscribe to an investment, the fewer shares can be sold to every one of the investors who has joined. For instance, if you apply for $1,000, and the share allotment is 10%, you eventually get shares for only $100, the rest $900 will return to your account.

In 2020 the share allotment for IPO investment ideas has been about 7%. The share allotment for pre-IPO investments is 100% since the buy-in process is different.
