About Us

The Quoted Companies Alliance champions the UK’s community of 1000+ small and mid-sized publicly traded businesses and the firms that advise them.


We believe the public markets can be the best place for companies to source the funds to grow, operate transparently and distribute wealth, fairly.


The QCA seeks to inform policy in dialogue with regulators and government, showcase the latest thinking on leadership, investment, technology and governance through our events and research, and provide a forum to share good practice among our members, who are quoted on the Main Market, AIM and the Aquis Stock Exchange.


Informed by our seven Expert Groups drawn from the membership, we campaign to ensure that regulation is proportionate, while maintaining the necessary protections for investors. Our QCA Corporate Governance Code is followed by the vast majority of AIM companies.


Small and mid-sized publicly traded companies represent 91% of the quoted sector. They employ around 2.1m people and contribute more than £25bn in annual taxation [source].


Our goal is to create an environment where their potential is fulfilled, helping to ensure a healthy and resilient UK economy.
