Investor appetite for flotations reinvigorated by Conservative victory

The Conservative general election victory has reinvigorated London's listings market sufficiently to beat expectations for the previous quarter. According to EY's latest IPO Eye report, there were 20 flotations in the second quarter which raised £3bn. The companies that have listed are trading on average 29% higher than their listing price, demonstrating renewed investor enthusiasm for flotations. In the main market eight companies, including Shawbrook and BCA Marketplace, raised funds of £2.6bn. London's junior market also recovered from its quiet opening to the year, producing 12 floats including Marshall Motors and Irish service station group Applegreen.
