Robinhood IPO

Robinhood has been no stranger to the spotlight since the launch of its trading app in 2015. The company has been a disruptor in the fintech space: the discount brokerage’s mission to democratise investing, its streamlined platform, and zero minimums has made it popular among younger investors. Its no-commission model has forced competitors to follow suit.

Ahead of its own IPO, Robinhood introduced a new platform that gives its users the opportunity to buy shares of companies at their IPO price before they start trading on public exchanges. And, according to its latest SEC filing, Robinhood plans to set aside 20%-35% of its shares to users of the platform, IPO Access.
