Ingrid Pierce, Walkers global managing partner, describes it as ‘a super interesting deal’ – the $300m IPO on the Nasdaq of Queen’s Gambit Growth Capital, which is incorporated as a Cayman exempted company.

Labelled ‘a fundamentally different kind of SPAC’, by its CEO Victoria Grace, Queen’s Gambit is emblematic of the increasing ESG (environmental, social, and corporate governance) focus of investment. ‘The younger generation cares a lot more about the environment, sustainability and doing good,’ she says. ‘I’m very happy about that, and it’s only going to continue in that direction.’
