The exchange has stated that £9.3 billion was raised via flotations for the five months preceding August, an increase of 132% when compared with the same period last year. Global equity markets have reached all-year highs, in some cases multi-year highs. This renewed confidence in equities has encouraged more companies to raise money by ‘going public’, so while equity markets remain stable we could see a steady flow of companies listing on the LSE.
The LSE’s primary business is the stock exchange but it also offers other market platforms; their money market trading business reported a 14% increase in trading volumes and the retail bond trading division reported a 15% increase in business.
However the financial difficulties in the eurozone have impacted the business; the company acquired the Italian stock exchange in 2009., and the Italian average daily trading volume is down 7% compared with the same period last year.
The group’s CEO Xavier Rolet has stated the firm is making ‘good progress’ in its primary business, while it also continues to expand into the settlement and custody business.
