Our staff's background

The advisors of IPO Boutique are extremely active investors and traders who have multiple accounts with the most prestigious underwriters in North America and the world. We have surpassed 10,000 IPO's and Secondaries traded. Our recommendations have benefited both beginners and financial industry veterans. Most advisory services do not focus their time, as we do, to analyze every IPO and Secondary that is filed. We enable you to make continuously informed decisions on investments that are generally considered speculative by market standards.

It is the synergy of our experience, knowledge of the market environment, and our underwriter contacts that make us a valuable source for your own due diligence. We are professionals, and will strive to constantly improve our services to you to help you achieve your goals.
