Our Capital Markets practice is recognised as a market leader in Singapore by corporates and investment banks. We have played leading roles in the development of innovative new capital markets and acted in many significant first-of-its-kind transactions in Singapore, including the first ever initial public offering (IPO) to be simultaneously listed on the main markets of Bursa Malaysia and the Singapore Exchange, the first IPO and listing of an oil and gas company under the new listings regime for mineral, oil and gas companies on the Singapore Exchange mainboard, the first Basel III compliant regulatory issuance by an Asian bank, the first retail perpetual securities offering, the first retail offering of bonds and the first ever 144A Basel III bank capital transaction from Asia ex-Japan. Over the years, we have also advised on most of the largest IPOs in Singapore across various industry sectors.

Our expertise covers the entire range of debt, equity and equity-linked products in the Singapore and international markets, including IPOs and listings on the Singapore Exchange, global depository receipts, retail bond offerings, vanilla bond issues, medium term note programmes, regulatory capital issuances, convertible/exchangeable and other equity-linked bonds, asset securitisations, repackagings, structured finance and derivatives and Islamic finance. We advise on post-issue matters such as restructurings, refinancings and liability management. We are also regularly consulted by regulators, industry bodies and leading players with regard to reviewing or enhancing the relevant regulatory or legislative regime.
