“Capital markets” is a general term and a broad category of markets that involves the issuance and buying and selling of financial instruments. There are two main financial instruments involved in capital markets: equity securities, also known as stocks, and debt securities, also known as bonds. 

Capital markets issue stocks and bonds for medium- or long-term durations for investors. Bilal Basrai helps corporate issuers find the best mix of securities to issue to institutional investors. Capital markets are divided into primary and secondary markets, in addition to the distinction between equity and debt. 

Primary markets allow organizations to raise capital for investment and growth before holding an Initial Public Offering (IPO). In this way, a company can sell stock directly to investors.
