Video: M&A experts discuss Business Development Companies’ impact

Without doubt, the environment for Mergers & Acquisitions is high. Part of that energy is fueled by Business Development Companies (BDC). A BDC is a US publicly-listed company that provides financing to small and mid-sized businesses – much like a venture capital fund. The key difference is BDCs allow small, non-accredited investors to invest in emerging growth and start-up companies… an opportunity generally available only very wealthy investors via VCs and private equity firms.

Click on the video above to watch the panel at our recent Mergermarket event, M&A and Private Equity 2015: Keeping up the momentum, insights on BDCs.
