The Australian Securities & Investments Commission has warned stockbrokers that it will clamp down on favourable treatment of certain investors when it comes to allocating shares via IPOs.

She also says ASIC is concerned about listing standards, particularly with regard to overseas companies that seem to have little business interest in Australia that seek to list on the local bourse.
