LAPFF’s response focuses on how to ensure that the UK Listing Regime is fit for purpose and focussed on shareholder and creditor protection, not other market agents’ interests.

LAPFF sets out that there also needs to be clarity as to the investor protection provided by Listing Rules and the investor protection provided by company law.
