U.S. Capital Markets Q1 2024 insights

The Capital Markets sector is grappling with decreased debt origination due to high interest rates, with a year-to-date (YTD) volume of $56.04 billion falling behind the first quarter of 2023, alongside a drop in active lenders. This decline is partly due to lenders' overexposure to troubled assets, offering chances for opportunistic buyers. A significant concern is the halt in regional bank lending, previously a mainstay for CRE financing, without a clear alternative. Equity markets are also struggling, with YTD investment sales at $29.64 billion across all sectors. Institutional investors are sidelined, deterred by the high cost of capital. Notably, there's a surge in funds aimed at opportunistic investments, with Blackstone raising a record $30 billion, targeting returns above 20%, indicating anticipation of a pricing rebound with potential interest rate cuts.
