HONG KONG — Prada’s long-awaited initial public offering is attracting institutional investors but retail investors appear to be shying away.
“It seems like an awful market now, unless you’re a famous Italian brand,” said Ben Collett, head of equities at Louis Capital Markets in Hong Kong. He said he’s seeing strong demand for Prada shares from institutional clients despite an overall softening market for IPOs in the city.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
