CAL’s innovations give confidence to clients that change is necessary to meet the complex evolving needs of the markets – making it the ideal cutting-edge partner on the investment journey, be it a first-time or a veteran investor. “CAL’s Investment Banking arm has a well-established position of market leadership in Initial Public Offerings, accruing expertise and experience that enabled us to streamline the process onto a widely accessible digital platform,” commented Vishnu Balachandran - Head of Investment Banking at Capital Alliance.
“With the IPO Portal, we are helping clients reimagine their IPO process, offering a wider investor reach to corporates seeking to raise capital in this new, increasingly contactless world”, he further added. The IPO Portal, the latest feature to be added on to the company’s continuously expanding digital investment platform, ensures easy access and convenience for investors. Backed by digital signature technology for elevated authentication and security, registered users will also be able to receive notifications on future IPOs announced by CAL to better capitalise on investment opportunities.
