Event details

Markets have embraced the SPAC (special purpose acquisition company) as an agile and increasingly sophisticated alternative to the traditional IPO.

In August 2021, the London Stock Exchange introduced updated listing rules to attract SPACs to London.

BritCham Shanghai and its Financial Services Committee invite you to join this webinar to learn more about SPACs, listing in London and the UK corporate governance regime.

If you are intermediaries in China who arrange overseas stock exchange listings for clients, or companies looking to list overseas, please join the webinar on 4 November at 5 pm, China Time (9 am, UK time).
