Many thanks for attending our Capital Markets Workshop.

The event was enjoyed by all those who attended on the day; commenting on how they welcomed the opportunity to meet in an informal & independent workshop and learn about the recent case studies, key success factors, potential issues and how to overcome these issues, different listing structures and which capital markets in London and Asia may best suit particular businesses

Special thanks to the Department for International Trade, our guest speaker Mr Ang Siak Keng, Partner at Zico Law and our sponsors Crowe Clark Whitehill and Minerva; without their support, this event would not have been possible.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Best Regards
