[On :freetrade:] IWG - International Workplace Group (grown-up WeWork) 👩🏻‍💻

Has anyone here researched or invested in IWG? I’m considering them but haven’t made up my mind yet.

Here’s what I’ve learned so far:

  • They are the world’s largest provider of flexible workspace.
  • WeWork has driven the trend for this kind of working, which IWG are benefiting from.
  • Lots of companies moving to flexible workspace, especially in US and Canada.
  • Unlike WeWork, they are profitable.
  • Shares up 77% in a year.
  • It has been selling off some international arms to focus on being a franchiser rather than an operator.

I’ve got one share (I do this as a watchlist whilst the real thing comes!).

I think it’s riding the WeWork wave at the moment so I’m hesitant to invest more.

A lot of people don’t know IWG by name but they know Regus. Problem is every commercial landlord is trying to do a wework on it at the moment. Exciting space to invest if you can back the right horse.
