DKYC – Don’t Know Your Customer

15th June 2016

One of the enduring mysteries of IPOs remains the all-elusive institutional investor allocation process. I once heard a hedge fund manager describe it as the method through which you can receive as many shares as you want, in deals that are sure to tank in the aftermarket, and, conversely, as few as possible, in hot, oversubscribed transactions that outperform after the start of trading.

 

 

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.

Please use the contact form above to report an IPO story or an ECM development.
