  • IFR-25th Anniversary 1974-1999 - Global change

    All Special Reports | 03 July 1999

    Editing IFR today, at a time of seminal change in international capital markets, is a daunting yet fascinating challenge. Markets that in the 1980s were becoming commoditised have once again pushed innovation, inventiveness and flexibility to the fore.

  • Coal India, a sign of the times

    Capital City | 06 November 2010

    Coal India’s US$3.5bn IPO could become a poster child on two counts; the first reflecting current red-hot global interest in emerging markets; the second showcasing the opposite: the ability of domestic capital markets to mobilise substantial pools of capital, which feeds the growing self-assuredness and greater capital self-sufficiency of major developing economies.

    Failed IPOs: it's the process, stupid

    Capital City | 20 November 2010

    The epidemic of failed IPOs may have nothing to do with valuation mismatches, the poor underlying economy, fund outflows, or market volatility per se. In Europe, at least, it may have everything to do with the fact that issuers have lost faith in the IPO process itself.

    No time to be a hero in investment banking

    Looking back at the past year, it would be easy to summarise the events of 2010 as the global financial crisis Part 1 – the one created by financial market professionals, sleepy regulators, institutional investors and artificially low interest rates – giving way seamlessly to potentially an equally pernicious, tumultuous and damaging global financial crisis Part 2, this time created by profligate, over-indebted European sovereign governments.
