There are two main ways to list a company in Singapore, through the Mainboard Listing or the Catalist Listing. A company wishing to list on the Mainboard has to meet quantitative requirements. A Catalist Listing, on the other hand, does not involve any quantitative requirements and is tailored to faster-growing companies.
