An afternoon seminar dedicated to tackling the topic micro-to-mid caps. Participants will get information about various international funding/liquidity options as an alternative to the domestic offering.

UK listings are not limited to large caps. As you will learn from our speakers, London has created innovative and flexible regulatory and advisory infrastructures to accommodate issuers of all sizes.

For the first time in Switzerland, Tiger Link Advisors Ltd has put together a UK “all platforms/all angles” information seminar comprising of 10 presentations and a panel discussion about UK’s business environment, UK’s public markets and the IPO/listing process.

Speakers include the London Stock Exchange, NEX Exchange and the Social Stock Exchange, 5 specialist advisory firms, the UK Embassy in Bern and Bellevue Asset Management’s BB Healthcare Trust, recently listed in London.
