By Tim Ward, CEO of the Quoted Companies Alliance
September’s Hardman Monthly features an article from guest contributor, Tim Ward. Tim is the Chief Executive of the Quoted Companies Alliance (QCA), an organisation that champions the interests of small to mid-size quoted companies.
The QCA is known as an authoritative voice in the capital markets space for mid and small-cap companies.
This article highlights the concerns that research coverage of small- and mid-cap will shrink as a direct consequence of MiFID II, a fear that seems to be borne out by the recent QCA survey. The article goes on to suggest ways that companies might respond to the challenge, particularly highlighting company websites. Tim also outlines the requirement for a governance code for AIM companies from 28 September and the importance of transparency for investors.
