Hong Kong on course
to regain IPO crown

As of early December, 70 companies had listed in Hong Kong, raising US$29.4 billion.

Hong Kong is set to recapture the top billing as the world’s leading stock exchange for initial public offerings (IPOs) for the first time since 2011.

As of early December, 70 companies had listed in Hong Kong, raising US$29.4 billion. Last year’s mark of US$29.7 billion is expected to be significantly surpassed. At least 10 more companies are expected to list in Hong Kong before the end of the year. In comparison, the New York Stock Exchange has raised US$19.6 billion while the London Market has raised US$16.2 billion to date.

Last year, Hong Kong was beaten by New York after it lost the Alibaba Group’s record US$25 billion listing.
