Fund managers also remain positive on the quality of floats coming to market. Ben Griffiths from Eley Griffiths Group says, Book-builds have generally been well supported and the level interest shown recently for Healthscope and Regis IPO's and Veda and Ramsay Health Care selldowns is testimony to this...The pipeline at present is a long way from capacity and is quite manageable. Quality remains good which indicates it is still early days in the cycle. Full report in the Financial Review (pay wall): (VIEW LINK)
