Investor relations specialist Capital Access Group (CAG) has brought in Simon Brickles, formerly head of AIM at the London Stock Exchange, to chair its newly-launched advisory board.
The advisory board is an informal forum which promotes greater investor engagement for quoted companies. It is made up of senior directors of listed companies, fund manager and senior City figures.
Brickles, who will chair the board, has some 20 years experience developing and operating capital markets around the world. He was CEO of PLUS Markets – now ICAP Securities and Derivatives Exchange – where he coordinated the creation of the first, full new stock exchange in London for 200 years.
Richard Feigen, Capital Access’s chief exec, said: “I am delighted to have Simon as the chair of our new Advisory Group. With over two decades of experience of running stock exchange markets, he has an acute understanding of regulation and market dynamics. His knowledge will prove to be an invaluable resource to our clients as we navigate the latest chapter in the evolution of global capital markets.
“The Advisory Group will provide vital counsel for all our stakeholders and we look forward to announcing who is joining the Group in the next few weeks.”
