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.
