Mining and exploration company Far Northern Resources is set to list on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). This means you'll soon be able to buy company shares through a broker. Here's what we know about the initial public offering (IPO), including how to invest before it lists and how to buy in when it lists.

Where to invest in the Far Northern Resources IPO

You can invest in pre-IPO stock through a participating broker or lead manager before the offer closes on 8 September 2023. In this case, the Far Northern Resources IPO is being lead managed by CPS Capital Group Pty Ltd.

If you're already registered with a broker, check if they're offering pre-listed stock or think about signing up to a participating broker.

However, it can be tricky for regular investors to participate in IPOs because only a few firms are usually allocated pre-IPO stock. In most cases, these are full-service brokers that require a large initial deposit.

Your other easier option is to buy shares in Far Northern Resources once it goes public. You can do that through a share trading platform:
