Australian share trading platform Superhero is not publicly listed, which means that you can't currently buy shares in the company. However there are reports that Superhero is looking to list on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in 2021.
Superhero's platform officially launched in September 2020 in Australia with $5 brokerage for ASX stocks and minimum trades of $100. As of July 2021, Superhero offers both US and Australian shares and ETFs.
In December, Superhero announced it was adding two superannuation funds to its offering which would give users greater control over their investments than regular super funds.
According to unnamed sources cited on Australian Financial Review, Superhero is aiming to raise up to $25 million in a pre-IPO raising. Finder is not able to confirm this. We'll update this page with information as it becomes available.
What we know about the Superhero IPO
Superhero has not yet filed a prospectus with the Australian Securities Investment Commission (ASIC). If and when that happens, we'll find out the company's IPO offer price, target market capitalisation and any growth plans.
No date has been named for when the stock might be publicly, but AFR sources say it could seek to go public within the next 12 months. Stockbroker Shaw and Partners is reportedly assisting with the pre-IPO raising.
Superhero is still relatively new to the market so there's limited information available on company profits and history.
According to a pitch deck recently shared with investors, Superhero has recorded over 35,000 sign ups since it launched, with an average revenue increase of nearly 50% per month.
What are Superhero's future plans
There appears to be a couple of major product updates in the works for Superhero. Last year it announced the upcoming launch of a superannuation product with two fund investment options - Autopilot and Control.
This will mark a pretty unique addition to Australia's market, with both options set to give users the ability to build their own portfolios through stock or ETF selection.
How to buy shares in Superhero
Superhero is not listed on the ASX, so it's not yet possible to buy publicly listed shares. If Superhero does go public, you may be able to apply to buy pre-IPO shares with the lead manager or through your own broker if they have an agreement with the lead managers.

- Search for MyDeal. Find the stock by name or ticker symbol: MYD. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment against your financial goals.
- Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until MyDeal stock reaches your desired price. To spread out your purchase, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.
- Decide on how many to buy. Weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of MyDeal, depending on your broker.
- Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of MyDeal. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock, and even the business, performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights on directors and management that can affect your stock.
