HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- A flying start for debutantes on a new technology board in Shanghai could add to pressure on Hong Kong as a destination for new listings, but is unlikely to dilute the city's long-term appeal among Chinese companies seeking global investors.

Hong Kong's recognition as an international financial hub and the resilience of its market pricing mechanism will help the local stock exchange maintain its allure as a go-to place for IPOs, say market participants and observers.
