Why Capital Markets are relevant Right Now for Family Business

presented by

Cole Naylor, Vice President, Stephens, Inc.
Cole Naylor

In a global economy, capital markets are a key component in stimulating activity. When markets are healthy, companies grow, unemployment is low, consumer spending rises and most Americans are generally better off. Conversely, when capital markets are disrupted or halted, businesses are at risk of failure, unemployment is higher and consumer spending decreases. Although we have been witnessing  unprecedented disruptions as a result of the pandemic, there are some initial signs of resurgence in capital markets.  
Join us as Cole Naylor, Vice President at Stephens Inc. discusses why capital markets are relevant for private and family businesses. He will be addressing:

  • Why should a family-owned business be concerned with the capital markets?
  • What types of capital can be accessed by family businesses and what does it cost?
  • What are the benefits and risks of placing debt versus selling equity to raise capital versus operating at the status quo?
  • What resources are available to help navigate these uncertain times should a business need access capital?
