2017 was a marked by a resurgence in IPO activity with total DR capital raised reaching $15.8 billion, up 91% from 2016. The Asia-Pacific region led activity, accounting for almost half of the total.  With major global equity markets hitting long-term highs during  the year, the outlook for depositary receipts appears to be positive.
