What we know about the Deliveroo IPO

London-based delivery service, Deliveroo, went public on the LSE on March 31, 2021 under the ticker symbol “ROO.” The initial share price was expected to be between £3.90 and £4.60, which valued the company at £7.59 billion (around CAD $13.17 billion). Back in January, 2021, the company was valued at $7 billion after raising $180 million in a round of funding.

Can I buy Deliveroo stock from Canada?

You can’t buy Deliveroo stock on a Canadian stock exchange like the TSX or CSE. Instead, you need a Canadian broker that provides access to stocks sold on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), the market in which Deliveroo stocks are trading. However, some Canadian brokerages don’t offer access to international investments at all or only provide access to a limited range of investment opportunities.

Interactive Brokers provides access to many stock exchanges around the world including the London Stock Exchange (LSE), New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), NASDAQ, Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), Hong Kong Stock Exchange (SEHK), Korea Stock Exchange (KSE), National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) and Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FWB).

The process of buying stocks listed on international exchanges is basically the same as buying stocks in a Canadian company. You buy and sell using your online trading account or through an investment broker who handles international stocks.
