LONDON (Reuters) -Britain's twin-track company listing regime could be simplified into a single entry point to the London Stock Exchange to attract more startups, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said on Thursday in a move that could split market participants. Britain wants to bolster London's attractiveness as a global location for listings as it continues to trail New York in bringing tech companies to the market, and faces added competition from Amsterdam since Brexit.
The share price, which was down 4% at close on Thursday, jumped as much as 27% in early trading on Friday.
Britain's competition watchdog will conduct an investigation into the London Stock Exchange's acquisition of Quantile Group, it said on Tuesday. LSEG said in December it had acquired Quantile for up to 274 million pounds ($338.64 million) to expand its range of post-trade risk management solutions to banks, hedge funds and financial institutions trading derivatives. The Competition and Markets Authority said that following an assessment of proposed undertakings by the two firms, it had decided to refer the merger for an "in-depth investigation".
