We are consulting on the following changes that we are proposing to make to the Knowledge Base.
This guidance is likely to be of most relevance to issuers of transferable securities and their advisers, investors and other persons who interact with FCA.
Background to this consultation
The Knowledge Base is the FCA’s repository of non-handbook commentary that has the status of formal FCA guidance. It consists of a series of short procedural and technical notes published in PDF form and ordered by topic. The notes relate to aspects of the Listing Rules, Prospectus Regulation Rules and Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
Summary of our proposal
We are consulting on the following changes that we are proposing to make to the Knowledge Base:
The amendment of one existing technical note:
- Master-feeder structures (FCA/TN/409.1)
The addition of one new technical note:
- Class testing changes to an investment management agreement where there are unquantifiable benefits (FCA/TN/411.1)
We summarise our proposals in Primary Market Bulletin No. 24
