In this episode of Magic Markets, we talked about the “capital stack” in corporates and how they blend debt and equity into a capital structure that works for the business.

After setting the scene with a short discussion on central banks, we covered topics like:

  • The equity to debt spectrum, with mezzanine finance in the middle
  • Examples of the types of spreads you can expect to see across different sources of capital
  • The concept of weighted average cost of capital
  • The benefit of having debt in an organisation and how this forces management to focus
  • The relationship between debt and other policy decisions, like dividends and share buybacks

Magic Markets brings you institutional-level knowledge delivered in a way that is easy to understand. For more of our work, you can find our free shows here and our Premium library here.
