Bankers believe Trump will pump up IPOs in 2017

Bankers expect an increase in the number of initial public offerings in 2017, bolstered by the expectation of loosened regulations under President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.

Other contributing factors for the expected increase include positive returns from a scant slate of 2016 offerings, a cutback in private market valuations and the pricing of a big-name offering, according to BDO USA’s survey of 100 executives at investment banks. Other market experts see 2017 as an opening for companies valued at $1 billion or more because of high expectations for the debut of Snapchat maker Snap Inc.
