Welcome to the Listed @ ASX newsletter. This newsletter is intended for Managing Directors, Company Secretaries, other senior managers and corporate advisers.
 
In this first edition for 2008, read about ASX's recent 'Small Caps Down Under' event in New York. This event provided a range of mid-cap listed companies the opportunity to present to US fund managers and brokers. We review the volatile market of 2007 which produced double-digit annual returns while also covering - for the third year running - a pre-budget ASX submission that has been lodged with the Federal Government on a Flow-Through Share Scheme for resource exploration. We also remind listed MIS of what to take into account when making Managed Investment Trusts' distribution announcements.
