Primary Markets

The primary market is where securities are created. It's in this market that firms sell new stocks and bonds to the public for the first time. For our purposes, you can think of the primary market as the market where an initial public offering (IPO) takes place. Simply, an IPO occurs when a private company sells stocks to the public for the first time. In a primary market, companies, governments or public sector institutions can raise funds through bond issues and corporations can raise capital through the sale of new stocks through an initial public offering (IPO). This is often done through a dealer (security broker) or an investment bank.

  • In a primary issue, the securities are issued by the company directly to investors
  • The company receives the money and issues new security certificates to the investors.
  • Primary issues are used by companies for the purpose of setting up new business or for expanding or modernizing the existing business.
  • The primary market performs the crucial function of facilitating capital formation in the economy.
  • The new issue market does not include certain other sources of new long term external finance, such as loans from financial institutions. Borrowers in the new issue market may be raising capital for converting private capital into public capital; this is known as "going public."
The key functions of the primary market are;
  • To facilitate capital growth by enabling individuals to convert savings into investments.
  • To facilitates companies to issue new stocks to raise money directly from households for business expansion or to meet financial obligations.
  • To provides a channel for the government to raise funds from the public to finance public sector projects. Unlike the secondary market, such as the stock market which trades listed shares between buyers and sellers, the primary market exists for the issuance of new securities by corporations and the government directly to investors.

The importance of equity lies in the fact that it represents ownership of stockholders in a company. The interest of stockholders lies in accruing gains through rise in the value of stocks based on the future performance of the company. Equity investment can offer some of the best returns in the long-term based on how well you choose your stocks and the efficiency with which you manage them. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider investing in equities:

  • Capital growth in the long term, based on an increase in the market price of shares.
  • Dividends paid by the company to shareholders based on annual profits.
  • High level of liquidity.
  • The kind of flexibility afforded to investors in choice of companies, number of shares, price and type of transaction.

One can trade in equities in the secondary market in several segments as explained below:

  • Intra Day Trading – Buying/Selling of securities takes place on the same trading day but settlement takes place after three days. T+3
  • Delivery Based Transactions – It involves buying at a low price and selling at a high price at a later date.

Before buying stocks of a company, an investor should understand its functioning, nature of business and future growth prospects to ensure it is worthy investment. It is important to realize that market volatility can be rather high in the short-term which can present more risks than opportunities for an inexperienced investor. Instead of the number of stocks one owns, what matters more is the quality of the stocks, which depends to a large extent on the consistency of past performance for a company and possibility of good growth in future. At TIB Rasilimali, we have a dedicated team of experts to help our clients make wise investments and ensure good returns to meet their expectations.
