April 24, 2018

The London Stock Exchange Group has this morning published its financial results for the first quarter of the year. It says its performance in the quarter was strong, with double-digit income growth for Information Services, LCH and Capital Markets

It says that total income was up 13 percent year-on-year to £520 million (up 13 percent on an organic and constant currency basis).

David Warren, Interim Chief Executive and Group CFO until David Schwimmer assumes the role on 1 August this year, said: "The Group has delivered a strong first quarter performance. All of our key businesses continue to perform well, with strong growth in FTSE Russell, LCH and Capital Markets. During the period, we further increased our stake in LCH and acquired full ownership of the FTSE TMX Global Debt Capital Markets business.  

"We continue to invest in new product initiatives while maintaining a focus on improving efficiencies as we work to deliver on our financial targets. The group is strategically well placed to further develop its many growth opportunities, working in partnership with our customers."
