Learn more about the Main Market and why leading companies choose to list on the London Stock Exchange.

With roots stretching back to the coffee houses of 17th century London, London Stock Exchange is built on a long history of integrity, expertise and market knowledge.

It has become one of the world’s largest and most international stock exchanges, playing a pivotal role in the development of global capital markets. We offer the widest choice of routes to market, which are available to both UK and international companies, and today we have close to 3,000 companies from over 70 countries listed and trading on our markets.

In challenging market conditions, the London markets have proved their value by providing companies with access to capital when other funding channels have not been available. At London Stock Exchange, we strive to build on this success by working with market regulators and the wider financial community to ensure that our markets are well-regulated, transparent, liquid and neutral. This success is underpinned by the dedicated community of advisers and investors that continues to support the companies on our markets.

We understand that joining a public market is one of the most significant decisions a business will ever take; the sheer range of topics that need to be considered building up to IPO can seem like a daunting task. With this in mind, we have produced a guide to listing which has been developed with input from some of the key advisers experienced in bringing companies to our Main Market and our Professional Securities Market, providing you with a practical outline of the listing process, as well as an insight into life as a public company.
