Directly listing skirt investment-banking underwriters, to save companies millions of dollars in fees. It also means that companies do not raise money for themselves. Instead, employees and start-up investors are usually able to cash in on the stock on the first day of trading, as stocks only list on buyers and sellers matching exchanges and notifications.

Both Asana and Palantier hired Citadel Securities as their designated market maker and Morgan Stanley as their chief financial advisor for the start-up.

NYSE President Stacey Cunningham celebrated the first day of the asana trade on Wednesday.
