  • The Power of IPOs & Spin-Offs - New US Opportunities Recorded: Nov 21 2018 40 mins
    Gregg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist
    It’s no secret that the thematic offering of IPOs and Spin-Offs constitute a significant part of equity capital markets activity and are seen as drivers of innovation and growth.

    According to Bloomberg, from 2002 through September 2018, U.S. IPOs have raised over $529.49 billion USD in market cap.

    The key is to find the right investments and the right solution for you!
    The primary motivation for many investors regarding IPOs is to receive a short-term surge in price, regardless of a stock’s longer-term potential for success or failure.

    At First Trust, we take a different approach. Through our disciplined and rules-based approach, we seek to capture asset allocation benefits of strong performing U.S. companies as they transfer from a private to a publicly traded company post-IPO.

    This webinar aims to help enhance your understanding how IPOs and Spin-Offs work and how the IPOX®-100 U.S. Index technology can help investors get exposure to unique factors, not possible with conventional benchmarks.

    Webinar Highlights:
    •What are IPOs and Spin-Offs
    •Thematic approach: The market data and investment rationale
    •Why long-term asset allocation capture is behind FPX
    •Discuss the specialist FPX rules based and diversified ETF wrapper
