We are consulting on amending our rules on sponsor competence, and on some other changes to the Listing Rules and Prospectus Rules.
In this consultation paper, we set out our proposals to amend the Listing Rules and Guidance on sponsor competence, as well as asking for your views on joint sponsor arrangements. We are also consulting on two other proposals:
The consultation will interest consumers who deal and invest in premium listed securities either directly or indirectly through institutions. It will also interest premium listed issuers or applicants for premium listing as consumers of sponsor services. The policy proposals raise issues around protecting investors.
We want to know what you think of our proposals. Please use the online response form or write to us at the address on page 2 of the paper.
The consultation period closes on 30 April 2014 and we intend to publish our response to your feedback – and the final rules – in the last quarter of 2014.
