High Growth Segment: New market now open

In September 2012, the Government announced that it wanted to make the UK a more attractive listing destination for fast-growing, high-tech companies. As a result, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) is now accepting applications for trading for its newly-formed High Growth Segment. This new segment will present significant opportunities for both companies and investors alike. In March the LSE published its final rulebook for this market segment, which sets out the criteria to be met by companies seeking admission.

This white paper reviews the LSE's recent announcement that it is introducing a new high growth market segment. It looks at the opportunities that this newly-formed segment will create for fast-growing, high-tech companies. You will gain insight into the rules that all companies looking to gain admission to trade need to adhere to.
