Global Capital Sources
At IBH Capital, we continuously monitor and analyze global capital markets to find and secure various sources of capital with the most favorable terms for our clients’ business development. To achieve this goal effectively, IBH Capital develops and maintains close relationships with key decision-makers and capital market participants worldwide. We inform and educate our global capital partners face-to-face about capital placement opportunities within the U.S. and European markets, in which IBH Capital operates.
 

One of the initial tools that we use to analyze global capital markets is the CFR Global Monetary Policy Tracker. It compiles data from 54 countries across the world to highlight global trends in monetary policy that influence interest rates.

 

Global interest rates are impacted by several factors, such as monetary policy, economic growth, and inflation. Monetary policy strategy is in turn influenced by economic statistics such as gross domestic product (GDP), inflation rate, and industry/sector-specific growth rates. Monetary policy, often coordinated with its fiscal policy, controls the quantity of money available in an economy and new money supply channels to keep a nation's economy stable by limiting inflation and unemployment. 

 

Depending on the level of economic growth or stagnation, monetary policy can be either expansionary or contractionary.  

  • An expansionary monetary policy stimulates economic activity during slowdowns/recessions by lowering interest rates to increase consumer spending and borrowing.

  • A contractionary monetary policy slows down inflationary economic growth by increasing interest rates and limiting the outstanding supply of money.
