H1 2019 – A stampede of unicorns

In 2019 U.S. markets have routinely reached new records as investors look to capitalise on the longest running equity bull market in history. 2019 has also been the year of high profile, mainly technology-based, IPOs. The great recession of the late 2000's led to historic low interest rates which allowed young companies cheap access to capital and enabled them to put their business plans on steroids. Alongside this development, venture capitalists and other early stage focussed investors sought returns significantly ahead of the minimal yields offered by the low interest rate environment. Running parallel to this market backdrop, the entrance of SoftBank, flush with large sovereign wealth funds in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, has used its enormous $100bn Vision Fund to fuel the best and brightest ideas of American entrepreneurs. This combination led to a significant number of private companies remaining both private for longer and growing larger than what had previously occurred. These companies gained ever greater publicity as evidenced by the entrance of the word 'Unicorn' into everyday culture, and not limited solely to the financial press.
