The New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX) and the country's financial regulator have begun a review of its capital markets in a bid to rekindle interest in equity listings.

"This review responds to concerns expressed about the overall depth and breadth of our capital markets," Financial Markets Authority (FMA) CEO Rob Everett said.

The Capital Markets 2029 review will come up with recommendations to attract more participants and boost product diversity over a ten-year period, NZX and the regulator said in a joint statement.

NZX, which has been making strategic changes to draw more liquidity and more new listings, said in October it would move to a single equity board from 1 July 2019 as its two junior equity markets failed to attract companies.

The exchange also signed a deal with U.S. exchange Nasdaq last year to explore opportunities in dual listings and depository receipts, aiming to attract share sales by providing greater access to overseas markets.

The initial costs of the review will be funded by NZX and FMA, with the findings due to be published in third quarter.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
