ACGA Survey on Alibaba and Non-standard Shareholding Structures (NSSS)
ACGA held a press conference on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 to release the results of our new "Survey on Alibaba and Non-Standard Shareholding Structures in Hong Kong". The survey found strong support among global institutional investors for Hong Kong's "one share, one vote" standard and opposition to any rule changes to cater for unusual shareholding structures and so-called innovative companies. Investors also said they would discount the Hong Kong market and individual companies if such structures became common.
For a copy of the full survey and press releases in English and Chinese, see the story under "ACGA News".
