August 2021

Our Managing Partner and Head of Commercial Department Mr Philip Wong and Corporate Finance Partner Mr Wilson Ko were interviewed by Caixin on the potential introduction in Hong Kong of a listing regime for special purpose acquisition companies (“SPAC”). Caixin is a leading business and financial publication in China.

SPAC is a fundraising strategy which recently boomed in popularity in the United States and prompted Asian regulators to seriously explore formulating a localised mechanism to tap into the SPAC market. In March 2021, Hong Kong’s Financial Secretary Mr Paul Chan said that city’s regulators were giving SPAC listing a serious thought.
