City & Financial Global is delighted to be hosting a Summit on the Future of UK Capital Markets Regulation, which will be held on 25th September.
The purpose of the Summit is to examine the impact of the measures being proposed to improve the appeal of London as the listing venue of choice, particularly in relation to high tech, high growth companies.
The FCA has launched a consultation proposing a raft of measures designed to reverse the long-term decline in London listings. The Summit will look at the macro-economic factors affecting London’s competitiveness versus other financial centres. It will also delve into the detailed proposals to assess whether they are the key to unlocking London’s potential. Particular issues to be addressed include: increasing the level of investment in the UK market by UK pension funds and other investors to increase liquidity; reforming investment research post MiFID to improve the quality and accessibility of research; the work of the Accelerated Settlement Taskforce in seeking to expedite the settlement process; the Digitisation Taskforce’s proposals to reduce reliance on physical paperwork; the work of the City of London’s Finance for Growth Initiative; reforming regulation of short selling; and measures needed to create a more retail friendly investment culture.
We are delighted that and Julia Hoggett, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange; Sir Douglas Flint, Chair abrdn and Chair of the Digitisation Taskforce; Peter Harrison, Group Chief Executive, Schroders have already confirmed that they will be joining the speaker panel.
