Part 6 - Thematic Investing - IPOs and Spin Offs

Presented by

Gregg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist

About this talk

IPOs and Spin-Offs are seen as dynamic moments in the history of a company. In many ways it represents both the ending and the beginning of a company’s history. The exciting part is that the “beginning” of the post-IPO or Spin-off period, usually starts with quite a lot of capital. In fact, according to Bloomberg, from 2002 through to June 2019, U.S. IPOs have raised over $570.87 billion USD in market cap. In this video, Gregg will provide an overview of what we feel makes New Listings so special, how Thematic Investing can aid an investor to access securities they otherwise would have little-to-no exposure to, and why First Trust feels they may present a great opportunity for the thematic focused investor.
