​​​​​​Listing your company


Whether you've been through an IPO before or not, we will support you throughout the whole listing process. Listing your company on the stock market is exciting - but it can also be stressful. We've delivered hundreds of IPOs, so with us on your team we'll make sure yours runs like clockwork.

  • Your expert team
    We’ll appoint a dedicated project manager to work alongside your advisors, book runner and internal company secretarial, legal and finance teams.
  • Preparing for listing
    We’ll advise you on pre-IPO capital reorganisation and lock-ins for key executives. We’ll design your share certificate, notify Companies House, set up your security with Euroclear and build your initial share register.
  • Listing day
    We’ll enable your security and credit CREST accounts with new shares. If we’re managing a lock-in, we’ll work with your investment bank/advisor to facilitate the sell-down.

Want to list an overseas company?

If your company is incorporated outside the UK, Channel Islands, Ireland and the Isle of Man, listing rules do not allow your stock to be directly registered, transferred or settled through CREST, the UK settlement system.​

We help you to overcome this disadvantage, opening you up to UK investors without the need to move your country of incorporation.

We do this by creating a legal structure that allows an entitlement to your shares (called a Depositary Interest) to be settled as a UK security. Depositary Interests are admissible to CREST and can support your listing on the London Stock Exchange (Main Market or AIM) and on ICAP's Securities and Derivatives Exchange (ISDX).

​We're the clear market leader for companies listing via a DI:
  • We manage 65% of DIs in issue
  • We've set up DIs for companies in 26 jurisdictions
  • You can report on your DI register through our secure portal
  • We offer a flexible approach to delivering a structure that meets your needs
