    GQG Partners is pressuring BAT to move its primary listing to New York, according to the Financial Times. The shareholder reportedly believes it “makes no sense” for the cigarette manufacturer to remain on the U.K. stock market.

    A BAT spokesperson said that the company does not comment on engagement with shareholders when contacted by Reuters while GQG did not respond to a request for comment on the report.
