The FSA has published Feedback Statement 09/4 which contains FSA feedback on the responses to the proposals concerning the regulation of short selling set out in an earlier Discussion Paper.
The FSA confirms that it intends to pursue enhanced transparency of short selling through disclosure of significant short positions in all equities. However, it will work towards agreement on future requirements at an international level rather than introducing a separate domestic regime. In the meantime it has no plans for immediate changes to its current short selling requirements.
