THE FUTURE GROWTH OF LISTINGS ON THE NZX AND THE IMPLICATIONS ON EQUITY MARKETS

The recent departure of a listed entity from the New Zealand Stock Exchange generated a large amount of media coverage and raised questions in the world of dual listing in Australia and New Zealand.

Join an experienced panel close to this topic as they discuss:

  • what reasons might make other issuers delist? 
  • what are the advantages and disadvantages to a dual listing?
  • where is future growth stimulation for NZ capital markets coming from?
  • how is NZX developing engagement with listed entities to deepen the equity market?
