Show Notes

The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) have an in-depth discussion on the SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) phenomenon in the US markets.

The concept of a SPAC has been around in South Africa for several years but only a few companies came to market in this way. In contrast, the US market is now crawling with SPACs.
