Capital Markets

In 2021, US equity capital markets continued to climb higher, hitting record highs while COVID-19 and rising inflation dominated headlines - total IPO value and VC deal flow reached $775B and $330B, respectively. However, in a quick turn of events, US public equity markets entered correction territory halfway into Q1 2022, driven by macroeconomic policies and geopolitical tension, once again proving how volatile the markets could be. Investors and operators are left pondering: How long will recovery take? What are the implications to private markets? Will fundraising dry up? What will the future hold for SPACs? A group of seasoned public and early-to-late private investors will discuss the current state of the capital markets and what to expect in the future.
