Participate In A Deal That You've Been Invited To

Issuers can invite investors to participate in their offerings by either sending an Alto branded email or providing a unique hyperlink through a customized email or payment workflow. The initial email invitation from an issuer will pop up as both an email in your inbox as well as a box on your dashboard. If invited via custom link, the invitation will appear on your dashboard upon you clicking the link to connect the deal to your IRA.
