The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has launched a consultation on proposed reforms to improve the effectiveness of UK primary markets.
The reforms seek to address and build on proposals in the UK Listing Review and the Kalifa Review of UK FinTech. The changes aim to reduce barriers to listing for companies and therefore increase the range of investment opportunities for consumers on UK public markets. The FCA is also proposing measures to ensure the listing regime continues to have high standards of market integrity and to simplify its rulebook.
