Ms. Tammie Choi, Managing Partner at CWK Global, was recently invited to an interview on ViuTV’s “Invest Smarter” program. The interview focused on the latest developments in corporate listings, including the listing plans in Hong Kong and overseas stock exchanges during the COVID-19 pandemic and the current economic recovery period.
Over the past three years, many businesses have faced significant challenges due to the pandemic. The listing requirements on the main board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange still demand a substantial level of profitability and operational capital, making it difficult for some companies to raise funds through listings in Hong Kong.
Earlier this year, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange allowed the listing of Specialist Technology Companies, but it will take some time for companies to list through this route.
In addition to assisting various companies in preparing for listings in Hong Kong, CWK Global also works together with its overseas branches to help companies list overseas. As long as there are professionals in the team who have a good understanding of the local market and listing regulations, the entire listing process in overseas stock exchanges is not more complicated than listing in Hong Kong.
