Allen & Gledhill Partner Leonard Ching, Counsel Alvin Zhuang and Associate Wayne Chan contributed this article to the Capital Markets Law Journal published by the Oxford University Press. The article explores the history of the regulatory and statutory developments in Singapore leading to the acceptance by the Singapore Exchange of dual-class share structures, and examines in detail the requirements under the Singapore regime, in comparison against the equivalent regime in Hong Kong. The article discusses the strategic and competitive thrust behind the Singapore regime, and its design and positioning as part of the Singapore proposition as a choice equity capital market.
