Hugh Dive of Atlas Funds Management says the financial market is approaching the end of its bull run, resulting in lower-quality IPOs. Sebastian Evans of NAOS says many companies have no good reason for listing on the Australian sharemarket, and he does not anticipate an improvement in the quality of IPOs in the near-term. Meanwhile, Andrew Stevens of UBS says investors are becoming more selective with regard to IPOs. Coronado Global Resources and Viva Energy are among the recent IPOs that have underperformed.
