It has been a challenging year for Asia’s Capital Markets. Last year was a tough year for IPOs, and the HKEx dropped from first to fourth globally. Chinese companies continue to dominate the market and all eyes are on Alibaba’s rumoured listing. Foreign listings have been down with the market predicting they will be predominantly led by luxury goods and mining and minerals.
