PraxisIFM lists on The International Stock Exchange


PraxisIFM Group, one of the largest independent financial services operations based in the Channel Islands, has listed on The International Stock Exchange (TISE).

The Guernsey-registered business, with assets under administration in excess of USD40 billion and revenues of more than GBP30 million, has around 300 staff across 10 jurisdictions.
Simon Thornton, PraxisIFM’s chief executive officer, says: “PraxisIFM is thrilled to announce its listing on TISE, which will broaden further the group’s profile internationally and, in particular, within our target markets.
“This listing will strengthen our position as an employer of choice, enhancing our ability to attract and retain staff.”
In addition, it provides the group with access to capital markets and the ability to gain a potentially attractive acquisition currency, for use were any suitable acquisition opportunity to arise.
“The listing will also provide existing shareholders with a market for their shares,” adds Thornton.
During 2016 there were 502 new listings on TISE – up 18.7 per cent on the previous year. The market capitalisation of all listed securities on TISE last year increased by GBP36 billion (10 per cent) to reach GBP393 billion at the end of the year.
Jon Ravenscroft, group chief executive officer of listing sponsor Ravenscroft, says: “It’s testament to TISE’s growing reputation that companies like PraxisIFM, with a global footprint, are choosing to list with them.”
Andrew Weaver, partner of lead counsel Appleby, says: “We are delighted to have acted as lead counsel in both Jersey and Guernsey to PraxisIFM in relation to its listing on TISE and are incredibly proud to have worked with such an exciting and fast growing business in this major step in its development.”
Fiona Le Poidevin (pictured), chief executive officer of The International Stock Exchange Group, says: “I am pleased to welcome PraxisIFM onto TISE. It is great to see such a well-known Channel Islands business choosing to list on the Exchange and demonstrating a path which other companies could follow.”
As a result of the listing, Andrew Haining and Iain Stokes are joining the PraxisIFM board as non-executive chairman and director respectively. Haining, who is chairman of Channel Islands airline Aurigny, has extensive experience as a private equity investor and adviser. A Cambridge graduate, Haining co-founded Balmuir Partners in 2005 and before that he was a founder investor in and subsequently CEO of Botts & Company – a London based private equity fund manager.
Stokes has extensive financial services experience following a career with BDO and Guernsey International Fund Managers Limited (part of ING Barings) before joining Mourant’s corporate and fund services business in 2003. As group managing director, he was a member of the executive team that managed the sale of that business to State Street in 2010 and where he was a senior managing director until 2012. He holds a range of non-executive directorships on fund management and fund investment companies focused on alternative asset strategies.
