Primary Bid pushes private investors towards the front of the funding queue
PrimaryBid provides private investors access to new share placings from listed companies, at the same discount as institutions, delivering open access regardless of the size of their investment.
Conceived in 2015, this innovative regulated platform includes a website and smartphone app, which automates the aggregation of retail demand, allowing the large and active pool of private investors to be connected with companies seeking to raise capital.
Fundraises for listed companies have typically only been accessible by institutional investors. This has long been a frustration for private investors, compounded by missing out on the typical discounted prices offered for such transactions.
Listed companies want to engage their private investor shareholders, however, they are often frustrated by the lack of an efficient method to do so.
Retail investors play an important role in the market. Compared to institutional investors, they tend to hold their stocks for longer which can dampen price volatility.
The management team behind PrimaryBid has a combination of capital markets, technology and marketing experience, gathered across roles at companies including Credit Suisse, Bank of America, Citi, Ernst & Young, Yahoo, Amazon and the BBC.
This breadth of knowledge and expertise has enabled the team to transform the traditional fundraising process, harnessing technology to put the investor at the heart of a streamlined, highly efficient, digital platform while maintaining a regulatory robust compliant framework, necessary in the highlyregulated capital markets environment.
Over the past three years the business has grown from early beta stage through to a dynamic, award winning investment platform. More than £56m has been sourced via the platform and recent offers have closed within hours, with offers being promoted to hundreds of thousands of private investors.
