About this talk

One of the hottest trends on Wall Street has found its way to the fintech market. A SPAC or special purpose acquisition company is a shell company set up by investors with the sole purpose of raising money through an IPO to eventually acquire another company. SPACs have skyrocketed from a small handful of deals in 2019 to more than 20 in 2020.

  • What is a SPAC and why would a company choose this route?
  • What has changed in the market where so many deals are now getting done?
  • Why would a company go the traditional IPO route if a SPAC option exists?
  • Will the SPAC trend have staying power?
