ALERTS FOR RUMOURED VIRGIN ATLANTIC IPO
Rumoured Virgin Atlantic IPO - register for updates
Virgin Atlantic shares could start trading on the London Stock Exchange via an initial public offering (IPO) in the future.
The British airline started by Richard Branson is known for its red and white livery and the 'let's do it approach' of its founder. It mainly operates long-haul transatlantic flights.
While the story is being reported in the press, it's yet to be confirmed by the airline. This would be the first chance for most people to invest in the company. But it could happen quickly, with little notice.

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.
