Valuations, Liquidity or FOMO behind the IPO rush in 2020

The stock markets fell to drastically low levels due to the worst sell-offs in more than a decade. From the lowest levels in March 2020, the secondary market recovered by the end of the year and the new issues market also followed suit.

The subscription levels were quite high, and the listing gains were also high. This article further explores the reasons for increased interest by retail investors in uncertain times. Is it the company valuations, or increased liquidity, or FOMO that is driving such a rush in the new issues market?
