The world’s economic powerhouse

The merger between London Stock Exchange and Borsa Italiana in 2007 created Europe’s leading Exchange Group, representing:

  • the biggest single pool of capital and liquidity 
  • a single world-class trading system
  • a unique choice of markets and entry routes available to European businesses according to company size, stage of development and business focus

Europe is an incredibly diverse region in terms of culture and entrepreneurial models. And London, with its uniquely international profile, is uniquely placed to capture and valorise these differences.

A London listing offers access to a truly global community with a deep understanding of international companies. As a team we are entirely dedicated to maximising our client’s exposure, bringing together both investors and issuers at industry events such as our Capital Market Days.

In recent years London Stock Exchange has become the leading listing venue for companies in Europe. It is now home to about 150 companies from across Europe, representing a collective market capitalisation of close to £500 bn.

The latest listings cover a diverse range of industry sectors including technology, industrial, energy, real-estate, consumer goods, PE/VC backed and investment funds.

We regularly visit countries across Europe, attending conferences, round tables, seminars and private meetings. If you’re considering raising capital now or in the future and would like to know more, we can help.
