Hosted by The Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts Ltd.
Global CFA Society Passport Event
Hong Kong listed companies may be required to suspend trading for various reasons. While there are legitimate reasons such as dealing with sensitive information, there are also cases of involuntary suspension triggered by queries from the regulators and auditors, and at times, even allegations from the short-sellers.
The seminar will cover:
- Summary of Grant Thornton’s sixth fraud survey
- Case studies and analysis of suspended listed companies, as well as insights into resumption of trading
- Recent trends in regulatory enforcement actions
- Suggestions on how to effectively tackle queries from various stakeholders
- Q & A
