HK Securities and Investment Institute talk

20th September 2012

I gave a presentation today to an audience of 67 at the Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute (HKSI) (as it is now called), on the subject of recent developments in the field of IPOs in Asia.

HKEx does some Seoul searching

10th September 2012

A hardly noticed piece of news was released by the Hong Kong exchange on August 30: companies incorporated in South Korea will now be allowed to list in Hong Kong. Korea will accordingly join a list of 19 other jurisdictions now recognised by the exchange – on top of the mainland, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and, of course, Hong Kong itself.

Listless and bored

3rd September 2012

Around this time last year I wrote a preview of the IPOs expected to arrive on the Hong Kong market. It’s telling that most of those same deals are still in the pipeline, twisting in some interminable pre-launch marketing limbo.

 

 

I have set up this blog to report notable events on international IPOs.

These include particularly remarkable transactions, changes in market practice (whether pertaining to documentation, valuation or marketing techniques) and regulations, as well as appointments in the sphere of equity capital markets (ECM).

Although the blog has a bias towards the Asia-Pacific region, since this is where I am based, it is intended to be global in both its scope and outlook.
