Telegraph - JP Morgan warns of New Year float concerns

Trading Desk

Business owners should float as soon as possible if they want to tap the stock markets in 2016 otherwise a series of unpredictable political events could scotch their fundraising plans, according to investment bankers from JP Morgan.

The US and French presidential elections will take place towards the end of the year, and the British vote on whether or not to stay in the EU may by then also be on the horizon.

As a result investors could be cautious and markets volatile making it harder for businesses to go public.

'If the conditions are right, companies should make the decision to float as soon as possible', said Achintya Mangla, JP Morgan’s co-head of equity capital markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
