AFME comments on FCA investment banking market study findings

Commenting on the FCA’s investment and corporate banking market study interim report and a Discussion Paper on the IPO Process, Simon Lewis, Chief Executive of the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME), said:

“We continue to support the FCA's efforts to encourage competition in financial services to the benefit of the consumer and with a view to maintaining liquidity and growth across the single market. We note the proposed measures set out by the FCA and, in particular, we welcome the proposal to consider changes to the IPO process in relation to the publication of independent research. We look forward to participating in the consultation process that will follow the publication of the report.”
