A Virtual & Efficient Process – The Key Steps

Singer Capital Markets is appointed following a virtual pitch in June 2020.

Pilot-fishing executed virtually across 10 institutions before the end of August.

Coordinated a four week roadshow in November, resulting in broad support from Institutions, Wealth Managers and Retail Investors.

The entire process was managed by Singer Capital Markets, ensuring seamless communication despite the remote nature.

"The transaction that sums up 2020. Not only does it capture this year's surge in investor enthusiasm for all things environmental, it may also be the first entirely virtual IPO in the square mile."
