African, Asian and European Exchanges converge on Vietnam to offer listing opportunities

Ho Chi Minh City, May 31st – 5 exchanges join for a Listing panel to offer Vietnamese
companies a comparative insight listings requierments and opportunities abroad.

Tokyo Stock Exchange, Bursa Malaysia, Cairo & Alexandria Exchange, OMX Nasdaq and London Stock Exchange will come together on one stage and openly discuss their competitive advantages to attract Vietnamese companies to list on their floors.

This rare gathering is part of the annual Asian Traders and Investor Convention in Vietnam. The event is organized by TheNextView and is expected to attract 10’000 visitors.

As Stephen Lai CEO of TheNextView  (a Singapore based company) explained: “We have invite directors of all the local listed companies, especially those with strong business plan with viable investment projects, to come to listen to the senior representatives of overseas stock exchanges explain how they have simplified listing rules and processess for Vietnamese companies.

This is a unique opportunity to compare the listing conditions between exchanges when they are all in the same room at the same time!

There are many good reasons why CEOs of listed companies should consider co-listing in overseas stock exchanges, let me just name three here.

  • Co listing means you can tap more easily into world capital markets
  • It’s easier for foreigners to invest in a co-listed stock than it is to invest directly in Vietnam
  • Co-listing makes the company available to overseas retail investors rather than just fund managers

He further added “TheNextViews mission is to connect the key stakeholders within Asia’s financial eco-system, i.e. securities exchanges, securities companies, fund managers, listed companies, and private investors, to form a powerful investment network.”
