ABI Response to FSA extension of disclosure on shortselling

Peter Montagnon, the ABI's Director of Investment Affairs, said:

"We support the moves outlined by the FSA today. Short-selling usually provides a useful role in the market, but there is a need for transparency. It is important to know who is taking a short position. The FSA is also right in lifting the ban on short-selling at this time, though we understand why it was introduced."
