US hedge fund Elliott Management recently argued that there is no reason for BHP to retain its dual-listed structure following a 2018 settlement with the Australian Taxation Office regarding its Singapore marketing hub. However, BHP CEO Andrew Mackenzie says other factors would need to be taken into account when deciding the future of its dual listing. Amongst other things, BHP would be removed from the FTSE Index if it were to have a primary listing in Australia, which may result in many UK investors existing its share register.
