Week in Review: $1 Trillion, Moelis, and Nasdaq

Dry powder is at an all-time high. According to a report from Bain this week, PE firms collected $1.077 trillion of capital overhang in 2013, surpassing the previous record from 2008. It is predicted that the capital will help drive both deal activity and valuations. Then again, similar predictions were also made at the end of 2012.

In other news, Moelis filed for a $100 million IPO. The WSJ commented that the filing is a bet that M&A transactions will increasingly fall under the purview of the shops with “a narrower focus than their larger Wall Street peers and are perceived to be freer of potential conflicts of interest.”
