NSBO is pleased to announce the IPO of DJI Holdings plc on 24 July 2014.

Our unique Chinese policy research and understanding of China enabled us to create accurate and insightful research into DJI’s position within the heavily-regulated Chinese lottery sector.

Although DJI listed on London’s AIM market, through our diverse institutional client network we were able to identify quality investors from around the world.
