The UK Listing Review report by Lord Hill has been published on Wednesday 3 March 2021, which can be accessed here. The review proposes some significant reforms to the rules that govern how companies raise finance on public markets to ensure that the UK remains an attractive location for companies to list and grow.
The QCA submitted a detailed response to the review and engaged with Lord Hill on several occasions. Broadly, we welcome the findings and recommendations contained in the report as they take forward our proposals and take into account our concerns.
We have produced a short brief which includes information on the background to the review, a summary of the QCA’s response to the call for evidence, an overview of the recommendations, the QCA’s position on the recommendations and a comparison table of our response and Lord Hill’s report.

We will continue to work with HM Treasury, the FCA and LSEG as the recommendations are taken forward in order to ensure that they are in the interest of the small and mid-sized quoted companies we represent.
