Introduction to Listing a Security

In this video, Kate introduces the topic of listing. She highlights who sets the rules and the relevant regulations that the rules are contained in and also explains what the impact of Brexit will be on the UK listing procedure. Finally, she discusses why issuers would list securities.
Overview

A listing means that an offering document (or prospectus) for an issue of debt or equity securities has been reviewed and approved by a stock exchange, and the securities are admitted to trading on that exchange. There are various rules for listings depending on the type of listing venue and where the security is listed. Benefits of listing securities outweigh the negatives, although listing is not possible for certain issuers, including a larger investor base, Quoted Eurobond Exemption and ECB eligibility to name a few.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand what a listing is
