Equity capital markets are evolving fast. Have you charted your path to growth?

06/04/2018

Europe’s equity capital markets are evolving fast, creating new options for growth but also more choices and challenges.

As IPO book-building processes become shorter, listing practices change and the current market environment complicates capital markets decisions, the right ECM choices are becoming more important than ever. 

From IPOs and capital increases to accelerated transactions, or equity-linked alternatives to traditional borrowing, any company on a growth trajectory needs an adviser with expertise across the full equity chain, and a strong track record in key national markets.

Don’t let changing conditions stall your growth plans. If you are considering European ECM alternatives, we can help.
