KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia's biggest rubber glove maker has applied to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange despite signs that the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines may temper investor appetite for medical glove stocks.

Hong Kong would be the third market to host the company's shares and an additional primary listing would give it the chance to raise more money on one of Asia's most liquid stock exchanges. Top Glove also has a primary listing in Malaysia and those shares were also listed in a secondary offering in Singapore.
