FTSE Russell completes TMX buy
April 12, 2018

FTSE Russell, the global index, data and analytics provider, says it has completed the purchase from TMX Group Limited (TMX) and MTS SpA (MTS) of their respective minority shareholdings in FTSE TMX Global Debt Capital Markets Limited (FTSE TMX). The minority shareholdings amount to an aggregate 27 percent or so stake in the joint venture, which was originally established between FTSE and TMX in 2013.

As a result, FTSE Russell will assume 100 percent ownership of FTSE TMX. The acquisition of the minority interests has been made through FTSE International Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of London Stock Exchange Group. The terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Mark Makepeace, CEO of FTSE Russell: "We continue to see demand from clients, including global institutional asset owners, for multi-asset solutions in the index and analytics space. FTSE Russell is the most diversified of the global benchmark providers and is well positioned to benefit from these key industry trends delivering a broad offering of equity and fixed income benchmarks, data and analytics."
