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.
The markets saw a flood of USD-denominated high-yield offerings and dim sum bonds at the start of the year. But following the US Federal Reserve’s announcement that it may taper its quantitative easing policy, the debt market stalled. What will the future hold if interest rates increase?
These are some of the questions raised over the past 12 months. The IFLR Asia Capital Markets Forum will bring together industry-wide global and regional policy makers, such as high-level regulators and industry representatives to discuss and analyse the key issues facing Asia’s capital markets.
