This yearÆs China country award to Country Garden's Hong Kong IPO recognises one of the most distinctive and successful capital markets trends this year, namely that of Chinese real estate. The deal statistics of this groundbreaking IPO are naturally impressive with Hong Kong retail investors submitting orders worth $42 billion - at the time the second-most popular retail offering on record after Industrial and Commercial Bank of China ICBC. A good company, good execution and good after-market performance make this deal a worthy winner.
