We also have close connection with other capital market specialists groups in their respective markets handling initial public offerings and other capital transactions, e.g. The London Capital Market Group

Over the years, we have had a substantial market share in mainland China, Hong Kong and Singapore in terms of gross funds raised. For example, we acted as the reporting accountants for more than half of those listings on the Hong Kong Main Board with gross funds raised exceeding USD 1 billion over the past five years. As a market leader and a pioneer in the capital market, we were the reporting accountants of the first "H" share listing and the first "GEM" listing on the Hong Kong Growth Enterprise Market, etc. The great majority of the companies we helped to list remain our clients today.
