SCMP’s China Conference: Hong Kong


Nana Li, Research Director, China, was invited to speak in a panel session “Can Hong Kong’s IPO market sustain its historic highs?” at the China Conference: Hong Kong hosted by the South China Morning Post on 16 June 2021.

The first quarter of 2021 saw public offerings in Hong Kong hit close to US$11 billion, a nearly 500 per cent jump from a year earlier. A pandemic-induced hunger for technology stocks and the threat of US delistings have been advantageous for Hong Kong’s market, driving a surge in initial and secondary share sales. Meanwhile a slowdown in listings on the mainland could push even more firms to Hong Kong. Meanwhile, regulators are seeking to stamp out “undesirable” conduct by brokers as Hong Kong attracts massive capital inflows from high-profile offerings. What does all of this activity mean for Hong Kong’s financial sector? How are strategic and operational changes impacting this trend? How are regulations and geopolitical risks impacting the markets?
