A restricted list is a list of issuers whose securities or other financial instruments are subject to restrictions on sales, trading, or research activity. The restricted list reinforces your controls around protecting confidential information. It prevents situations such as the purchase by investment managers of a firm of shares in a company just before the merchant banking arm of that firm launches a takeover bid for that company.​

When an issuer appears on the restricted list, certain sales, trading and research activities involving that issuer ’s securities or other financial instruments may be restricted. Issuers should only be added to the restricted list after information is no longer price sensitive. Whilst the information is price sensitive you should consider using a watch list.​
