Monday’s Factors and Events

Since Nasdaq’s founding in 1971, our mission has been to build markets that allow great businesses and entrepreneurs to flourish, create jobs, and ignite a permanent cycle of economic growth.

Our focus on creating the markets of tomorrow endures today. We know that U.S. markets and our economy are healthier than a decade ago. We also know that there is more work to be done to ensure that this increased strength is sustainable for the long term.

In 2017, we set out to answer this lingering question: How can American capital markets be revitalized for the next era of growth? Our study, “The Promise of Market Reform: Reigniting America’s Economic Engine “, addressed structural concerns about public markets in three categories: overly complex regulations that disincentivize market participation; a one-size-fits-all market structure that deprives some companies of the benefits they need to participate and succeed in public markets; and a culture in the investment community (and in the mainstream media) that creates an imbalance between the value of long-term return and short-term potential.
