Corporate offerings such as secondary listings and IPOs from Chinese tech companies are accelerating. This year alone we have seen 161 such events, which is already 72% of the entire number from last year.

Why do Chinese tech companies turn to public markets to raise capital? Why is the Hong Kong Stock Exchange increasingly popular? And how does the domestic Chinese stock market fit in to all this for tech companies?

In the latest episode of Digitally China, we interview the co-host of the China Tech Investor podcast James Hull to get an understanding of the latest trends and what all of this means for Chinese technology companies.

Topics covered during this episode:

  • The rush to IPO from tech companies around the world
  • Differences between Hong Kong and US public markets
  • The future of domestic public listings in China
