AvaTrade Aims For £700 Million London IPO

Top online broker, AvaTrade, is the latest big name to eye London for an IPO in the coming months. While precise timelines are yet to be confirmed, initial reports suggest the Dublin-based broker could be valued at between £500 million and £700 million.

AvaTrade IPO On The Horizon

The popular trading broker has selected JP Morgan and Jefferies to lead preparations for its expected listing. Whilst timings and valuations are subject to market conditions and investor confidence, the deal could be huge for the broker that has seen year-on-year growth and picked up multiple accolades since its inception in 2006.

AvaTrade could apply to be listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The AIM is a sub-market of the LSE and is usually formed of smaller firms. The AIM also offers a more relaxed regulatory system versus the primary LSE.

Should the IPO go ahead, AvaTrade would join other big UK-listed brokerages, including the IG Group, Plus500 and CMC Markets.

The online broker’s valuation has jumped six-fold in the last five years which demonstrates its success at appealing to the retail trading market.
