The primary market deals with issuing of new securities such as stock (equity) or bonds (debts).  These transactions are done through investment banking activities such as new bond issues, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) & loan syndication.

Individuals and Institutions.

Individuals like you contribute savings to banks and insurance policies where the money will be re-directed into the capital market for investments.

Institutional investors such as governments, banks, corporations also supply capital as they hold large amount of cash.

 

Who Buy or Use the Capital?

Individuals borrow money for housing, car, education, investments, shares, credit cards, travel, emergencies or to start a business.  This is mainly served by banks and finance companies.

Businesses borrow money through debt instruments such as bonds for cashflow, working capital, expansion or acquisitions. Instead of borrowing, businesses can raise equity where the suppliers of capital (investors) becomes the shareholders of the company.

Governments borrow money by issuing bonds or treasury bills to fund the country development.

  • Investment Banks arrange bonds issuance, loan syndication, mergers & acquisitions, IPOs.
  • Private Equity invest into bonds & equities, in the early stage, mid-stage & late stage.  They play an important role by investing into many of the deals the investment banks and banks put together.  Private Equity is in the business of pooling investments into privatised investments or non-listed companies.  In modern times, private equity have also invested into listed-companies.
  • Brokerages reach out to their wide clients’ base (institutional and individuals) and offer the securities arranged by the Investment Banks.
  • Underwriters & Book runners are the banks, investment banks or brokerages who help to underwrite, process, find investments and place investments into the securities.

 

What is the Difference between the Financial Markets & Capital Markets?
