It’s Episode 16 of Magic Markets – SPAC Attack

Everyone and their dog is launching a SPAC. For those who aren’t aware yet, that’s a Special Purpose Acquisition Company and it’s the latest Fad to hit Wall Street, except its been around a while.

Listen in as @FinanceGhost and I help you unpack what a SPAC is and is it a good idea to invest in them. SPACS be useful structures to bring companies to markets but should we be watching this as a risk flag of exuberance in markets too?

Topics discussed include:

  • What is a SPAC
  • SPACs vs IPOs
  • Insiders vs. Outsiders – information and opportunity asymmetry
  • What’s the difference between Investment Hold Co’s and SPACS
  • Are the plethora of SPACS a risk flag
