To make securities markets work well, we focus on issuers of securities
The UK is a global centre for the issuance of securities – tradable financial instruments like shares and bonds. So that investors can have confidence in securities markets, securities regulators focus on the companies that issue those securities, which we call ‘issuers’.
In the UK, the FCA does this through:
In the UK, there are issuers from almost every industry sector and from countries all over the world. View the Official List (this takes you to the Official List page directly).
Investors can gain access here to regulatory information on issuers and find out how to contact us regarding a possible breach of the FCA Listing Rules, Prospectus Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Issuers (and their advisors) can find information and resources here that they need for interacting with us and for carrying out their various obligations under the FCA Listing Rules, Prospectus Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
Issuers that are subject to our Disclosure and Transparency Rules, Listing Rules or Prospectus Rules are required to make announcements to investors in a range of circumstances.
Sponsor firms are firms approved by the FCA to advise premium listed companies on their obligations under the listing regime. We explain who the sponsor firms are, how we regulate them and how firms can apply to us to become a sponsor firm. We also provide information and resources that sponsor firms may need to refer to when interacting with us.
We recognise the importance to the capital raising process of good, reliable and predictable service.
