Global Equity Segment

What is the GES?

With Global Equity Segment, investors are able to trade certain US blue chips, US-listed Asian ADRs and other internationally listed securities during London hours.

Benefits of using the Global Equity Segment

  • Trade global equities on the world’s most international exchange
  • Trade during a convenient time zone
  • Trade and settle US securities in USD
  • No stamp duty

Utilising a well-established CREST Depository Interest (CDI) workflow means investors can trade and settle international securities in London quickly, cheaply and efficiently. The ability to move CDIs quickly and easily between markets allows for cross-border execution and settlement within a T+2 settlement cycle. Investors can buy securities in London and sell in New York on the same day during regular trading hours. Both trades would then settle T+2 in respective markets.
