London Stock Exchange (LSE) Main Market

Founded in 1801, the London Stock Exchange is one of the oldest stock markets in the world. The main market is home to over 1,300 large companies from 60 different countries and has a total market capitalisation of £3.8 trillion. 

The Main Market is the LSE’s flagship market, regulated by the FCA. A company can list on the Main Market in either the Premium segment or the Standard segment, each with different regulatory standards. A company with a premium listing is expected to meet the UK’s highest standards of regulation and corporate governance. A standard listing allows companies to access the Main Market by meeting EU harmonised standards, a lower regulatory burden. 

Why list on the LSE Main Market?

  • London is one of the most influential financial centres in the world, a cosmopolitan city with a strong regulatory, business and political framework that supports its financial markets
  • Raises your company’s profile which can increase demand for your shares and improve liquidity
  • Some investors are more comfortable investing in a business listed on the Main Market as they consider it a more secure opportunity

Suitable for companies with:

  • A market cap of £30 million or more
  • Minimum free float of 10%
  • Three years of audited accounts (or since incorporation, whichever is shorter)
