On 1 February 2011, The London Stock Exchange marked the first anniversary of the launch of its Order book for Retail Bonds (ORB). Since February 2010 the ORB, designed specifically for private investors, has seen significant growth in both the number and range of bonds available for trading, as well as an increase in the number of participants offering investors access to the platform.
On 25 February 2011, the London Stock Exchange held an event at its Paternoster Square headquarters to mark the occasion with Exchange executives, issuers, market makers and industry experts discussing the development of the platform over its first year and prospects for its development going forward.

"The London Stock Exchange's retail bond market has given British companies a welcome new way of funding their ambitions. At the same time it has given savers a new way to invest in UK firms. I congratulate the Exchange on the progress it has made during its first twelve months, and I look forward to supporting its development in the years ahead."
