You take a yearly rate of return – say 7% – and divide it into the number 72 to find out how many years it takes to double. So, in this example, an investor receiving a 7% rate of return will see his or her money double in ten years. At 5% a year, an investor will wait 14 years to see their investment double. At 9% a year, they&#...

TechCrunch Conversations: Direct listings

Last April, Spotify surprised Wall Street bankers by choosing to go public through a direct listing process rather than through a traditional IPO. Instead of issuing new shares, the company simply sold existing shares held by insiders, employees and investors directly to the market – bypassing the roadshow process and avoiding at least some of Wall Street’s fees.
