Which stock exchange is right for your business?

  • Share

When the time comes to take your company public, your choice of stock exchange isn't necessarily going to be straightforward.

While the majority of companies choose to list on their domestic stock exchanges, the globalization of capital has broadened the listing options around the globe.

Free-flowing capital, businesses without borders, and new economic growth centers are creating an environment of intensified global competition between the world's stock exchanges. As a result of these pressures, exchanges are actively seeking cross-border mergers, demutualizing, and even going public while deploying new technology and service offerings — all in an effort to win market share over their rivals.
