ALERTS FOR POTENTIAL PORSCHE IPO
Potential Porsche IPO - register for updates
Porsche shares could start trading on the stock market via an initial public offering (IPO) in the future.
Porsche is a German car manufacturer, famous for making luxury high-performance cars, like the Porsche 911 and the Porsche Cayenne. Volkswagen is their parent company. Volkswagen and Porsche are considering a stock split to ease the process should they go ahead with the IPO.
In a press release, Volkswagen announced that it will conduct an assessment on the feasibility of a potential IPO of Porsche.
IPOs can offer exciting opportunities - it’s often the first chance to invest in a major, global brand. But they often happen very quickly, with little notice.
Overseas IPOs aren’t typically open to UK private investors. So we expect the first chance for UK investors to buy shares in Porsche will be when they start trading on the exchange. Sign up for our alerts to stay up to date with the latest news, including:
- If Porsche confirms its IPO plans
- If you can take part in the IPO
- When and how you can buy Porsche shares
You’ll also get helpful tips and information on what to think about when investing in IPOs, plus news on selected other interesting IPOs.
Our IPO alerts service is for people who understand the risks of investing in equities, it is not personal advice. You should only consider investing if you’re free from significant debt (other than a mortgage) and have sufficient savings in an easily accessible account to cover for emergencies.
Investing in IPOs and individual companies isn’t right for everyone. It’s a higher-risk way to invest your money. When a company first lists on the stock market its share price can rise and fall quickly. The value of your investment depends on the fate of that company. If it fails, you risk losing your whole investment. Investors should make sure they understand the companies they’re investing in, the company specific risks, and make sure any businesses they own are held as part of a diversified portfolio. All investments and any income they produce will rise and fall in value, so you could make a loss. If you’re not sure of an investment's suitability for your circumstances, please speak to a financial adviser.
