Set your sights on a listing abroad?

Choosing the right capital market, stock exchange and stock exchange segment for your corporate strategy

Once you’ve taken the decision to go public or apply for a dual listing, you need to start planning the necessary steps and measures. The first stage of preparation is determining your goal.

  • You need to decide which capital market or listing zone (the Americas, Europe, Asia), and which stock exchange and segment will actively support your company’s strategy.
  • Is it beneficial to go public or to have your primary listing outside your company’s country of incorporation?
  • How mobile is your company on the capital market?

Finding the answers to these questions can pose complex challenges – particularly if there are strategic benefits to listing your company far from its familiar national market. For example, you can expect a listing abroad to attract consumers’ attention to your company’s products and media presence, and positively impact business operations.

The EY capital market compass provides help with the many criteria for selecting the right market – for both IPOs and secondary listings.
