Cost of Capital Raise
Co-author
Jul 2022
This white paper proposes that corporates should minimize their capital raises during IPOs due to the high relative costs, and focus instead on improving stock liquidity in the public market. Doing so, the authors state, enables corporates to minimize the overall cost of capital raising in the long term.

Co-author
Jul 2022
Frank Fu and his co-authors, Mikhail Shilshtut and Gina Xu, discuss their recent study that found IPO issuers with positive first-day returns outperformed those without in the one-year period post-listing, and had quadruple the market liquidity. This supports their idea that issuers are incentivized to create a healthy IPO first-day return for the long-term benefit of the companies.
