Equity capital markets
Asia issuers raised a total of $5.9 billion in the equity capital markets this week from 28 issues, the highest weekly deal count since September 26 with 32 completed transactions.

New China Life Insurance’s $1.9 billion IPO was the biggest deal of the week and was led by BNP Paribas, China International Capital Corp, China Merchants Bank, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and UBS. The deal is the fourth-biggest new listing in Hong Kong so far this year. A $1.2 billion IPO for Nexon was the second-largest deal of the week and led by Nomura, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Barclays Capital. The deal is the biggest Japan-listed IPO so far this year and also marks the first ever IPO by a South Korean issuer in Japan.

Haitong Securities’ $1.6 billion new listing and Chow Tai Fook’s $2.8 billion IPO were slated to complete today, which could have made this week the busiest so far this year. However, Haitong has now been delayed until next week at the earliest.

Goldman Sachs continues to lead the league table ranking with $13 billion, followed by Morgan Stanley and UBS.
