David Bukzin, Partner-In-Charge, New York City Office, Featured in Equities.com Article, "The Rise of Small Caps: David Bukzin of Marcum LLP Discusses the 3rd Annual MicroCap Conference."
With the market driving higher into record levels, the demand for new opportunities has contributed to the robust performance of the small and microcap market. Among the investment community, there’s a palpable thirst for innovation and new industries to propel growth, and in order to achieve that, it is critical that the small and microcap market be nurtured to encourage new technologies that will help generate sustainable economic activity.
Many of these exciting emerging growth and under-covered value companies will be on full display at the Third annual Marcum MicroCap Conference, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York on May 29, 2014. The conference is expected to draw 130 quality microcap companies with market caps of $500 million or under, as well as 2,000 attending investment bankers, institutional investors, sell-side analysts, senior management teams, and high net worth individuals.
The 2014 event is considerably bigger than the inaugural conference two years ago. Recognizing that there was a real deficiency of avenues to access capital for these burgeoning companies and a lack of opportunities to even meet legitimate prospective investors, Marcum LLP set out to create that platform to facilitate more discovery in the financial space. This renewed interest has helped to increase the flow of much-needed capital to many emerging growth companies and under-discovered businesses.
Equities.com had the opportunity to speak with David Bukzin, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum LLP’s national SEC Services Practice as well as the Firm’s New York City office and NY Assurance Services, to discuss this year’s event.
