WEBINAR: Refinitiv Capital Markets Briefing – 2019 Review


Event Details


November 7, 2019 9 AM - 10 AM CST




How active will capital markets be in H2?

H1 2019 marked a three-year low for global ECM. The US$307 billion raised was 25 percent down on last year, based on 23 percent fewer deals. But Q2 bounced back 39 percent, representing the best three-month period in the past 12 for new equity issuance. DCM was broadly flat in the first half, with $3.9 trillion raised, a two percent year-on-year increase. The quarterly debt picture was a mirror image of equities: the strongest start to the year since 2017, followed by a 14 percent slump in Q2.

Attendees will be able to:

  1. Access a detailed deep dive of the US capital markets in 2019  
  2. Learn key trends driving ECM and DCM activity so far this year and gain a forward-looking view into 2020.
  3. Explore how the US macro-economic and political trends are expected to impact this landscape.

Join us for a full review of the capital markets scene so far this year and a forward-looking view of what is yet to come as we head to 2020.
