Leading Hong Kong-based legal recruitment firm, Star Anise, sponsored the IFLR Asia Capital Markets Forum 2019, which took place on 14 November 2019 at the St. Regis in Wanchai. Despite the event coinciding with one of the most challenging weeks for the city, in the midst of the widely publicised street protests, the event was a great success. 

In this year's forum, speakers from the legal and finance professions discussed recent developments in the corporate finance world. And there was plenty of discussions, in the context of the street protests in Hong Kong (6 months in), the US-China trade war, the general global economic slow down, and other key events around the world and new regulations affecting the industry. The impact of technology and other innovations, such as online platforms and the digitalisation in the capital markets space, were also explored during the event.

Commenting on the event, Star Anise Legal's co-Managing Director, Annie Tang, said "I have been very impressed with the quality of the speakers at this event. The discussions on regional capital markets developments covering high yield, biotech listings, distressed debts and other hot topics were all on point, and the introduction of a live survey among the audience really made the discussions all the more engaging. We really enjoyed this event and it was also a great opportunity to network with professionals from different industry".

Chris Tang, also the co-Managing Director of Star Anise Legal, commented " The IFLR Asia Capital Markets Forum 2019 is well under way with a great turnout despite the turmoil we are experiencing on the streets of Hong Kong. There were really interesting insights gained from the talks, and what impressed me also was the broader discussions on the impact of local and global events on capital markets in different countries across the Asia Pacific region."

Here are a few highlights from the event:
