Money Never Sleeps

Wall Street institutions make money by advising clients on mergers and acquisitions, financial restructurings, debt underwriting, equity offerings, and trading services. The rally in stocks since late 2011 has boosted investor confidence and pushed corporations to invest in growth. This has resulted in a 6% increase in M&A activity in the US – and a 22%[1] rise in deal values from 2011 to 2012. The trend has held strong recently as well, with $586 billion of deals reported in Q4 2013, a 29% increase over the previous quarter.[2] Private equity firms also have taken advantage of favorable markets, with 24 private equity-backed IPOs in the second quarter of 2013, marking it the most active quarter in nearly nine years.[3] There were more than 43 PE-backed companies that went public in 2013, which raised almost $21 in the IPO market[5], and helped lead to the strongest year for IPOs since 2000.[4] See more
