Quality over quantity - RD:IR
Over the past decade, the number of issuers listed on the Main and AIM markets of the London Stock Exchange has decreased dramatically. However, the value of both markets has grown despite this decrease. In addition, the distribution of issuers between different sectors has been turned on its head since 1999 – remember when tech stocks ruled during the dotcom boom?

Comparing the UK market and its quality to similar markets abroad, this white paper addresses these facts and posits four reasons for companies seemingly shying away from going, or staying, public.
