Overview

The Hong Kong securities market ranks sixth in the world in terms of capitalisation. Public Companies and Their Equity Securities presents a comprehensive, critical examination of the laws and norms regulating existing companies, their equity securities, and other participants in this significant international market.

The author highlights the difficulties in making Anglo-Saxon corporate and securities laws fit fundamentally different markets via four major themes:

  • To ensure investor protection, corporate law and securities regulations must be formatted as one integral law.
  • Rules of corporate governance prevailing in Anglo-Saxon jurisdictions must be adapted in Hong Kong's different corporate structures.
  • Problems of enforcement must receive particular attention given the difficulties inherent in a self regulatory regime and the absence of a contingency fee system.
  • The problems posed by internationalisation require specific solutions.

    The author's probing, critical examination makes this an important work and one of significant comparative interest for corporate and securities lawyers and for academics and others interested in the workings of a major securities market.
