What happens if a company I’m invested in goes public?

When the underlying company exits to the public markets, Linqto will reach out to obtain your brokerage account information. If you don’t have a brokerage account, you can open one (many times for free) at a variety of online or traditional brokers. Linqto will then transfer your now-public, registered shares of stock into your brokerage account.

At that point, the company shares can be fully managed by you. Linqto wants to provide you to the exposure of private companies- once they go public, you should have flexibility to manage your own situation as you see fit. While some of our investors like to hold a company’s stock after it goes public, many others want consistent exposure to the private markets. After the company exits, they will liquidate their position to re-invest the proceeds back into the private markets.
