UK Finance responds to FCA CP21/21: Primary Markets Effectiveness Review

UK Finance and its members have welcomed this opportunity to support the government and regulatory authority's ongoing capital markets reforms through contributing to this key primary markets consultation.

Our submission is supportive of FCA's proposals to introduce a lower free float requirement, permit dual-class share structures on the premium list, and reconsider the current listing segments. These enhancements will ensure UK primary markets are internationally competitive in attracting innovative and high-growth issuers to list in the UK, whilst upholding London's recognised standards of governance and shareholder protection.
