CAPITAL ACCESS APPOINTS SIMON BRICKLES AS CHAIR OF NEW ADVISORY GROUP

Capital Access Group, the leading investor engagement adviser, is pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Brickles to chair its newly-established Advisory Group.

Simon was formerly Head of AIM at the London Stock Exchange. Under Simon’s leadership, AIM became probably the most successful growth market in the world. He has spent over twenty years developing and operating a number of diverse capital markets around the world. He was also CEO of PLUS Markets (now ISDX), where he coordinated the creation of the first, new full stock exchange in London for 200 years. Originally a barrister, Simon has worked with a variety of broking houses and is an experienced non-executive director.

The objective of Capital Access Group’s Advisory Group is to provide an informal forum in which to promote greater investor engagement for quoted companies. It will comprise a mix of senior directors of listed companies, fund managers and other senior City figures.

Richard Feigen, Chief Executive of Capital Access Group, 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.”
