Abstract:On 14 January 2008, the FSA published a discussion paper reviewing the structure of the UK listing regime. The FSA is seeking industry views on how the listing regime can be optimally structured to support an appropriate balance between investor protection and maintaining the competitiveness of UK capital markets. The paper discusses, among other things, ways to standardise the core requirements for primary listed companies and re-label the primary and secondary listing segments of the UK listing regime to help participants in the markets understand, more clearly, the obligations on issuers of the various types of listed securities. The paper sets out two options (and a series of sub options - see below) as to how the listing regime may be segmented and relabelled.
