1 November 2017
View Client Update
The UK Regulator has introduced reforms to the UK IPO Process requiring prospectuses to be published earlier and increasing the role of independent analysts.
Under the new rules, syndicate banks must not disseminate connected analyst research until an approved prospectus is published.
In addition, analysts independent of the syndicate banks must now be given access to the issuer’s management.
The rules also provide new guidance on avoiding conflicts of interests in producing connected research.
