Advice provided to clients will include developing the presentation of key investor messages, regular market feedback, investor targeting, equity dealing for corporate clients, compliance with UKLA and LSE regulations, shareholder register analysis and organising roadshows.

Corporate brokers are specifically involved in equity fundraisings with advice covering the nature, structure, timing and marketability of transactions, selling the transaction to institutional investors, effective distribution and orderly after-market and UKLA and LSE liaison.
