SPACs - Is A Blank Cheque Bubble Brewing?

The number of SPACs in 2020 grew fourfold from 2019, and so far in 2021, there have already been more SPACs than the entirety of 2019. What’s driving this, what are the risks, and is a bubble brewing?

The Morning Run gets into all this and more with Varun Mittal, Global Emerging Markets FinTech Leader at EY.
