Webinar: IPO opportunities for overseas companies in London

This webinar will be covering IPO opportunities for overseas companies in London which will be conducted in Mandarin.

企业赴英上市 (IPO) 网络研讨会

We are delighted to be invited and to be part of this webinar covering IPO opportunities for overseas companies in London which will be conducted in Mandarin.

The London Stock Exchange is home to the world’s leading international capital markets that welcome companies from around the globe.

Many overseas companies have prospered on the London capital markets, particularly those trading in Asia Pacific. In China, the Shanghai-London Stock Connect brings together one of the world’s largest domestic capital markets with the leading international market.

The London markets should not be seen as directly competing against national stock exchanges in China and South East Asia. In most cases, the capital market choice will be self-selecting based on the entrant company’s size, capital requirements, location and geographic expansion plans. Potential market entrants will need to demonstrate high quality, good governance and potential value to new investors.
