Listing and Admissions


To offer ETF issuers greater flexibility in admitting ETFs to the Main Market, the Exchange offers a choice of two routes to the UK market:

  • Apply to the UK Listing Authority (UKLA) for an official London listing and to the London Stock Exchange for admission to trading on the Main Market.
  • Apply to the London Stock Exchange for admission to trading on the Main Market based on an existing European Economic Area (EEA) listing.

Both options require the fund to be UCITS III compliant and to gain recognition from the Financial Services Authority (FSA).

While majority of ETFs are UCITS compliant in Europe, London Stock Exchange also offers dedicated segments for admission of non-UCITS ETFs.
