Markets Are Global, But the US Has the Biggest Draw
- What are the most glaring regulatory and other differences between US markets vs. those in Asia and Europe?
- How does the capital raise process and interest level for microcaps in Asia and Europe compare with in the US?
- Has the economic growth surge of China impacted markets in the rest of Asia and even in Europe, and in what ways?
- Is the LSE still as attractive as a public vehicle for international companies as it was a decade ago, or has the US regained its allure?
- ASEAN member nations appear to be favoring the US market as opposed to the geographically closer Chinese one. Why is that?
