Speaking exclusively to CNBC at the Australian Stockbrokers and Financial Advisors conference in Sydney, newly installed CEO Dominic Stevens says the Australian market is an attractive option for companies that aren't seeking a so called mega listing.
Stevens attributes the new listing figures to the fact that smaller companies prefer to list on a market like the ASX.
"On the Nasdaq you see listing of about $500 million, where as we see listings where companies are looking to raise between $50 to a few hundred million," says Stevens.
As floats in the Australian domestic space moderate, the ASX is now turning its attention to grabbing more foreign listings and has seen some success with New Zealand companies seeking a dual-listing in Australia.
Growing listings in the technology space have seen Israeli companies hit the ASX board with greater frequency, but it's not confined to those two markets.
"We're seeing companies out of the West Coast of the United States, Singapore and Southeast Asia; where maybe they don't have a strong local exchange." Stevens says.
Stevens says floats raising "a few hundred million" appear to be a "sweet spot" for the ASX.
