Companies Coming to London

London remains one of the major financial centres of the world.

However, flotations in London are expensive and complex even on the smaller capital listing exchange, the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). Many companies try to float before they are ready as the image of AIM is that of a friendly, easier exchange for smaller businesses. In reality, floating and raising funds on AIM remains complex, detailed and competitive. Despite the increasing complexity, AIM remains an attractive market.

There are many attractive businesses across the Middle East, India, Africa and Asia which, properly presented, would be attractive to the AIM market, and to investors and professionals in London. Black Swan works with such companies to ensure they are properly presented in London.

Black Swan co-ordinates and organises the professional services teams using our own broker, NOMAD and PR affiliates. We operate a system of standard form documentation prepared by in-house lawyers. This simplifies the flotation process and substantially reduces costs.
