City & Financial Global’s Regulation of Listed Companies Summit, taking place on 16th June, is the definitive forum for listed companies, prospective issuers and their professional advisers to explore the next generation of regulatory reforms and what they mean in practice for companies, company directors and investors.
Since our last Summit in September 2021, a great deal has happened and the programme has been comprehensively revised and updated to take account of the latest wave of reforms. One of the key changes is the Treasury’s proposed reform of the Financial Reporting Council and the introduction of a Sarbanes-Oxley style approach to internal controls and governance which is, or should be, at the top of every boardroom agenda.
The Summit will focus on how companies can access capital more quickly, efficiently and cheaply, including the impact of the Secondary Markets Capital Raising Review, the Treasury’s recent changes to the Prospectus Regime and whether this will enable public markets to compete more effectively over privately raised capital.
Other issues to be addressed include additional regulatory reporting requirements such as TCFD reporting; satisfying investor expectations in relation to climate change, sustainability and ESG reporting and diversity and inclusion reporting. Finally, the Summit will look at how effective the reforms introduced at the end of last year in relation to dual class share structures and reducing the size of the free float have been in attracting high growth and tech companies to list on the UK market and what more needs to be done to make the rest of the Hill Report a reality.
We are delighted that Clare Cole, Director of Market Oversight at the FCA has agreed to give a keynote address at the Summit.
