During the first half of 2020, the Hong Kong stock exchange has raised US$11.18 billion from 59 IPOs. This represents a 22 percent increase in terms of funds raised compared to the same period last year. Analysts have predicted that more U.S-listed Chinese companies will return to Hong Kong or the mainland as Sino-US tensions rise. As companies and markets adapt to the new normal, will Hong Kong continue to remain among the top IPO markets globally in 2020? In this session, our financial and legal experts will look at Hong Kong’s role in the financial markets and the impact of global political, social and economic uncertainties.
