David commented “I am delighted to see Appleby recognised for its work on Asia Sponsored SPACs, which is a reflection of the fantastic cross-jurisdictional team we have built in this area, and we look forward to continuing to deliver our SPAC expertise to Appleby’s Asia Pacific client base. In the coming months we expect to see more Asia Sponsored SPACs IPO on the NYSE and Nasdaq and are already seeing significant interest from clients in the proposed Hong Kong SPAC regime.”
