There are many reasons why many international companies are listed in the US market. Some of the facts are as follows: liquidity, diversified investors, trade in US Currency, Better regulatory environment and US Market Awareness.

Expectation from Trump Administration
Here is the view from the John Tuttle who has a positive expectation from Trump Administration: "After election results, Investors and market participants had realized was that the campaign rhetoric is over we have seen results.What we have been able to concluded is there is real meaningful chance that we may have a corporate tax reform and chance to have a  fresh look how do make America market place more competitive. A lot people people during  the Campaign focus negative parts of the messages from the both candidates. Once we got through the election, many people began focusing on positive messages. That’s how market business responded. There seems to be in meaningful shock at corporate tax reform and regulatory reform.

In addition," Markets go up and Markets down.Thats what healthy markets do.President speaks and people will listen and  of course markets will react.Words matter.I think its time to do a holistic review about the market structure in the USA." said Mr Tuttle.

Brexit is an opportunity or not?
"We operate energy exchange from London office. How the future business will be regulated. One of things investors or companies want picking the location or raise capital is some certainty of regulatory environment and tax regime over next 4 yrs . US has some uncertainty  and other part of the world have more certainty"  Tuttle added.
