IFLR Asia Capital Markets Forum 2017

  • Hong Kong

Partner Matthew Bersani (Hong Kong-Capital Markets) spoke at the “Regional Equity Capital Market Updates” panel discussion on November 28 at the IFLR Asia Capital Markets Forum 2017 in Hong Kong.

Co-moderated Matthew, panelists from the Securities and Futures Commission, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing, Citigroup and Daobridge Capital discussed the following:

  • Listing consultation conclusion – worth the wait?
  • HKEx consultations – What do they say about the way forward for Hong Kong as an international financial center?
  • Suitability – a subjective and yet transparent assessment?
  • Is competition for listings between U.S., Hong Kong and PRC helping to drive standards up or down?

The forum took place at JW Marriott Hong Kong and brought together industry representatives, regulators, corporate counsel, company secretaries, investment bankers, institutional investors, as well as private practice lawyers and discussed the Hong Kong capital markets landscape, The Belt & Road Initiative and Mainland-Hong Kong Bond Connect.
