The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission has tightened up regulation on the preparation of “pre-deal research” in a Hong Kong initial public offering (“IPO”). This refers to investment research written on an entity shortly to be listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (“HKEx”). The new rules, embodied in a relevant consultation paper, will apply to all listing applications submitted on or after 31 October 2011.
