Introduction

We live in interesting times where wealth can be created in numerous ways. One of them is to list a company.

A listed company’s shares become a form of currency which can be used for a variety of purposes. An example would be to use the shares as currency for the acquisition of businesses to grow the listed company. A bigger and more competitive company is always more attractive to future investors.

In a nutshell, success builds upon success. Many other opportunities will also follow. Access to capital is not only restricted to issuing of shares but to having access to the capital market by way of bonds, convertible loan stocks, etc.

Truly, one just needs some imagination to be able to harness the power of the stock exchange.
