The global IPO market has broken records by IPO volume and proceeds consistently into the fourth quarter, which, according to professional services firm, EY, is making 2021 the most active year for IPO in the past two decades.

“Initial optimism from rebounding economies, COVID-19 vaccine rollouts, and rolling liquidity from government stimulus programs provided strong tailwinds,” says Paul Go, EY Global IPO Leader.

However, it wasn’t a full-ahead press for IPOs. Go notes that in Q4 2021, continuing geopolitical tensions, the appearance of the omicron virus variant, has increased market volatility, and by extension, whether or not the listings will be launched as planned.
