How to invest in the Audeara IPO

To invest in an IPO, you'll usually need to be registered with a participating broker or lead manager. This can be tricky for retail investors because there are usually only a few firms allocated for each IPO and they're typically full-service stockbrokers. In this case, the IPO is being lead managed by Morgans Corporate Limited.

If you're already registered with a broker, it always pays to check if they're offering IPO stock, as lead managers sometimes allocate a portion of shares on to other firms. Your other option is to buy shares in Audeara once it goes public. To do that, you'll need to be signed up to a share trading platform:
