The age of dark capital
A perfect storm of low yields, passive investment trends and tightened regulation has created a critical market disconnect between listed companies and investors. The result is dark capital – vast pools of potential liquidity most companies are not aware of and cannot access.
The US has the deepest liquidity pools and c $9tn is allocated to overseas equities. However, much of it – especially within small to mid-sized institutions and single family offices – is likely to be dark to your listing right now because private wealth is spread widely across the US and managed by tens of thousands of different organisations.
Despite the complexity, you may be surprised by how much dark capital can be accessed with the right US strategy, planning and execution. Comparative valuations of European stocks are often attractive to US funds, especially those with a deep sector experience that understand your investment case logic.
