A few words about Freedom Finance
Fairly recent on the stock brokerage market in France, Freedom Finance’s Freedom24 online trading platform, accessible 24/7, allows retail investors from the European Union to participate in IPOs (Initial Public Offerings or IPOs) in the US and European markets. Freedom Finance Europe Ltd is the only European broker listed on the Nasdaq. “We hold a European CySEC license and enjoy a ‘B’ long-term credit rating from Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings”, is indicated on the website. The headquarters and offices of the public holding company Freedom Holdings Corp, numbering 75, are located in 7 countries: in the United States, Germany, Cyprus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
The holding company is regulated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission and Freedom Finance Europe Ltd by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). “We are accountable to three regulators – CySEC, BaFin and SEC. Transparent, reliable and open to all (…) We operate in accordance with the rules of MiFID II, a regulatory regime offering a high level of investor protection”, he adds. Freedom Finance is also 2,000 employees with 10 years or more of finance experience, $142 million in equity and $523 million in assets.
Why choose Freedom Finance for an IPO?
The web platform set up by Freedom Finance offers many advantages. To start, opening the brokerage account is quick and easy. The company is close to its customers and offers them promising IPOs. It keeps them regularly informed, sends them analyses, recommendations and advice on subjects that interest them. Beside this, previously, only financially well-off investors were allowed to participate in an IPO. With FreedomFinance, the amount of participation for customers is reduced to 2,000 dollars, in other words: almost everyone can access it. It should be noted that this is one of the rare European companies to allow small investors access to the IPO of American companies. The opportunity is real! To spoil nothing, all customers of Freedom Finance Europe Ltd become a D savings account holder (I mean the currency of the D account is dollars) . This allows you to store your profits with a fixed rate of return of 3% per year with daily accumulation of interest.
Freedom Finance: open an account to start investing!
To participate in an IPO, an investment account (or trading account) must be opened with Freedom Finance. It is advisable to do this in advance because of compliance checks and deadlines for funding your account. It only takes 2-15 minutes to verify the account, if the documents provided are correct. Thus, the complete registration with account opening will be completed in less than 15 minutes. When opening, you must first complete an economic profile and fill in certain data. Several supporting documents must be provided: copy of identity document, proof of address and taxpayer number in the country of tax residence. The signature of the contract is electronic and the whole thing takes about ten minutes.
As explained earlier, to participate in an IPO, the investment account must be credited with at least $2,000. Several choices are available to you to feed it: bank transfer or credit card. The entire procedure relating to money deposits is detailed point by point on the website. Thereafter, it is necessary to submit a request to participate in an IPO in your member area. Justissue a request to purchase securities for the desired amount by selecting the “Ticker” of the company, then confirming the transaction.
Then begins a 93-day blackout period, during which you can only track the current value of your stocks and their growth indicators. Finally, once the transaction is closed, you can manage your shares online as you wish, namely selling them or keeping them in your long-term investment portfolio.
