Ever since the successful Initial public offering (IPO) of Plus500 last year, there has been a massive surge of interest in pursuing IPOs by forex and binary options brokers, media companies and just about every other service provider to the industry. The upcoming Forex Magnates’ London Summit 2014 is targeting this hot topic, hosting a batch of experts who will contribute their valuable insights.

Following that success, industry insiders have been speculating who will be the next to go public. From Cyprus to Australia, it seems like every forex and binary options broker is checking the water to see if they can walk the walk. Markets.com, anyoption, Pepperstone, eToro and IronFX are just some of the firms rumored to be either examining the IPO option or already taking preliminary steps in that direction. But how can one know if they are big enough for a stock market and if they can handle the process?
On November 19, Forex Magnates’ London Summit will offer all the answers in a dedicated panel. The session, dubbed “IPO Fever – Behind the Scenes”, brings together senior professionals representing the different aspects of the IPO business.
Exchange heads, underwriters, investment funds, corporate lawyers and others will share their hands-on experience of the process and help attendees learn what is needed to successfully raise public capital: John Millar, Head of Primary Markets of London Stock Exchange Group, Jonathan Morris, Partner at Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP and Marc Cohen, Director at Kreab Gavin Anderson, have already secured their seats at the panel and more such esteemed professionals are in the process.
