ASX Listing Rules and Regulatory Changes with Scott Standen, GRT Lawyers

Episode 4 - Shownotes

In this episode of YS Up Governance and Boards Podcast, 3YS Owls Governance Consultants, Ainslie Cunningham and Deb Anderson interview Scott Standen from GRT Lawyers and together they explore some of the recent regulatory changes introduced as a result of COVID-19 to enable the more efficient operation of the market.

Since the changes have come in the ASX and ASIC have required companies to now be much more fulsome in their disclosure about how they've gone about the capital raising, who they've placed the shares with, what policies they had in place in terms of their allocations.. So, a lot more transparency now is being brought into those listing rules.
