Equity listings

Primary London, Ireland and Channel Islands markets

Avenir maintains electronically administered registers of holders and securities settling in the CREST system in the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands.

Avenir also offer certificated holdings, physical share certificates.

Our depth of experience means that we can work with Companies, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) or Investment Trusts to quickly take them through the process of Stock Exchange registration and CREST enablement simultaneously.

We work with companies regardless of where they are in their lifecycle, from IPOs to mature businesses and also offer an ISIN application service. This list of tasks that need to be undertaken here can look dauntiing to the unitiated, but the wealth of experience held by Avenir staff means that we can help navigate these requirements far faster than can be achieved by other registrar services.

Avenir's electronic-based due diligence processes mean that high resolution scanned documents can be accepted rather than waiting on physical copies. This streamlines the entire process, can prove critically important when working with directors who are spread over a wide geography and in turn saves clients significant amounts of time and money.

In 2015, Avenir facilitated a primary London listing in just 5 days

Historically this process would have taken up to 12 weeks to complete. In 2015, Avenir facilitated a primary London listing in just 5 days. We work with all exchanges that require or accept settlement in the CREST system.

Throughout the process we collaborate closely with corporate advisers, lawyers and others who are advising the business.

Once live on our Register directors can grant access to shareholders, advisers and company directors their own direct access to their shareholdings. Directors can download reports and Cap tables directly from the system. Our corporate actions service facilitate dividend distributions should your shares offer dividends.
