New York Stock Exchange Leads in Global Capital Raising in First Half of 2014; Continues to Support Innovation and Job Creation



The New York Stock Exchange, part of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) global network of exchanges, remained the global leader in capital raising in the first half of 2014. With $20.7 billion in total proceeds raised from 89 initial public offerings (IPOs), the NYSE is set to outpace 2013 in total IPO proceeds.

“Across the board it has been a strong first half, with notable activity from tech, financial services and energy sectors,” said EVP and Head of Global Listings, Scott Cutler. “Based on the current momentum and pipeline, the IPO market is set to surpass 2013, which was a record year. In addition, our activity from non-U.S. IPOs affirms NYSE as the global center for raising capital and speaks to the strength and stability offered by the U.S. capital markets.”

More than 85% of all U.S. IPOs this year have leveraged the JOBS act – with $20.3 billion raised from JOBS Act IPOs so far this year – a reflection of how the capital markets can support emerging growth companies. The NYSE advocated for the JOBS act and continues to support policy that encourages companies to access the public markets. In addition, the NYSE remains an active participant in the current market structure dialogue aimed at reducing the complexity and fragmentation of the U.S. stock market to ensure confidence in the operation of the markets.

“The ability to access public markets through an IPO process fuels our economy, fosters innovation and drives job creation,” said NYSE President Tom Farley. “As we continue to see an increasing number of companies access capital markets to support their growth objectives, it is essential to global economic growth that a fair, transparent and efficient market structure exists to support companies of all sizes as they list and trade on our markets.”

What Is a Global Capital Market?

Moble Art

A global capital market is the interlinking of various investment exchanges around the world that enable individuals and entities to buy and sell financial securities on an international level. The interlinking of these various exchanges results in the emergence of an informal, but never-the-less structured global capital market. Spurred by the decoupling of exchange controls and foregoing of adjustable peg exchange rates from individual Sunny capital markets, in addition to technological advances that have facilitated the movement of capital around the world, investors have increasingly sought investments in multiple currencies. While equities still lag behind, other investments, such as bonds, currencies and foreign exchanges, are all interlinked and highly visible in international trading. Yet to reach full maturity, the market is growing and integrating at a steady pace as investors continually shift investments to the most stable, well-regulated or high-growth economies around the globe.

As the complexity and interlinking of the global economy grows, so follows the capital markets. Currently, financial institutions around the world transfer billions of dollars worth of assets and investments on a daily basis in cross border exchanges. Assessing the worth of the global capital market, many researchers and economists have concluded the total represents more than $200,000,000,000,000 US Dollars (USD) and will continue to grow well into the future.

Everest Capital falls victim to Swiss franc, shutters largest fund: Report

People queue outside a currency exchange office in Geneva, January 15, 2015. The Swiss National Bank scrapped its cap on the franc on Thursday sending the safe-haven currency crashing below the 1.20 per euro floor it set over three years ago.
Switzerland’s unexpected decision to allow its currency to float freely once more against the euro may have claimed another victim—Everest Capital’s Global Fund. Bloomberg News, citing a person close to the firm, reported Saturday that Everest’s $830 million fund, its largest, took a bath after the Swiss National Bank unyoked the franc from Europe’s single currency this week. The Miami-based firm is run by Marko Dimitrijevic, a hedge fund veteran who has a long history in turbulent emerging markets. The SNB’s decision to remove the three-year-old peg, a legacy of Europe’s debt crisis, left a number of financial firms reeling. One of the worst hit was retail currency trading firm FXCM was forced to take a $300 million lifeline from Leucadia National. Major Wall Street banks like Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and Barclays also took a hit. As recently as last January, the European Central Bank ranked FXCM as the world’s third-largest retail foreign exchange broker. Reached by CNBC, a representative for Everest Capital declined to comment.
