Who are the Main Players in Capital Markets?

Mortgage originators

A mortgage originator is the first institution or individual involved in the secondary mortgage market, consisting of mortgage bankers, brokers, and retail banks. 

Government-sponsored entities (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac)

Government sponsored entities such as Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are privately held agencies that are backed by the United States government. The purpose of these entities is twofold:

  • Improve credit flow within the United States
  • Increase the availability of credit. 

These entities guarantee third party loans and purchase loans in the secondary market, serving as a source of funding for various lenders and financial institutions. Government-sponsored entities are also large loan originators who buy original loans from smaller lenders on the capital markets, pooling those mortgages together to make Mortgage Backed Securities. In turn, these are sold for more than the loans were bought for.

Securities dealers

Securities dealers buy the MBS to resell them for a higher price.

Investors

Investors purchase debt and equity securities for stable income in the form of interest on the loan amount or revenue. 

Institutional Investors

Institutional investors are major players in the capital market. This is a company that makes and manages investments for others using clients’ money. Examples include: Hedge funds, private and public pension funds, foreign governments, GSEs, insurance companies, banks, large private equity investors.

Functions of Capital Markets

When an equity or debt instrument is attached to a commercial property, it is part of the Commercial Real Estate capital market. The function of capital markets is to increase the flow and formation of capital within the economy. This bridges the market between those that require funds for various projects and those who have excess funds to invest. The capital markets provide investment opportunities, maintain the continuous exchange of funds, and encourage overall economic growth and development. This organized market brings together buyers, investors, sellers, and borrowers to pursue new development projects and existing opportunities through the financing vehicles of debt and equity. 

Capital Markets

Capital markets is the process of capital flowing from suppliers of capital to those in need of funding for projects, investments, among other reasons. The suppliers can include investors, banks, pensions, retirement funds, life insurance companies, individual households, and other key players that have capital to deploy. Those in need of capital can be anyone: businesses, organizations, governments, people, and other key players. The process of how capital markets work can be described as an exchange of funds (between suppliers and receivers) through various vehicles; these vehicles include bonds, shares, and debt instruments. In sum, the capital market provides the financial sector with liquidity and investment opportunities.

The exchange is further broken down into two markets: primary and secondary. 

Primary Capital Markets

Primary Capital Markets is the initial phase of the exchange, otherwise known as the new issues market. This is where new equity, stock and bond issues are initially created and offered to investors. 

The purpose of this exchange is for companies to raise funds for long-term initiatives. When a company chooses to enter the primary capital market, typically through an Initial Public Offering (or IPO), the company is subject to several hurdles: 

All new issues on the primary market are subject to strict regulation and must comply and file statements with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC); ultimately all new filings must be approved before they can go public. 

Secondary Capital Markets

Secondary Capital Markets are where the primary capital (or existing stocks and bond issues) are traded among other parties. This is referred to as the stock market and is open to the public to purchase shares based on the asking price. 

Examples of the stock market include the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), Nasdaq, and London Stock Exchange. 

The difference between the primary and secondary market lies within company involvement and management:

  • On the primary market, the company issuing securities is involved in the process. 
  • On the secondary market, investors trade these previously issued securities without the participation of the company.

Private Capital Markets versus Public Capital Markets

Within capital markets, there is the private market and public market. Both of them play pivotal roles in the economy. The public market is vital for long-term economic growth, offering companies the opportunity to raise funds for acquisitions and investments through vehicles like stocks and bonds. On the other hand, private capital markets allow private companies to sell off equity to private investors, raising capital for growth and operations.

Public Capital Markets

Public capital markets are made up of debt and equity markets where sellers and buyers are able to trade securities daily. This market allows companies to raise new capital, sell off existing shares for significant liquidity, and access a wider pool of investors.

Private Capital Markets

Private capital markets are composed of private investors ranging from venture capital firms to private equity firms, to individual investors. The securities sold on the private market allow investors to secure a part of the private company, which can offer large returns if the company chooses to go public down the line.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
