20 October 2016

Commenting on performance in Q3, Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive said:

“This is another good performance, delivering growth across our core businesses while continuing to invest in a wide range of opportunities to drive future returns.   

“In line with our open access approach, we continue to partner with customers to drive innovation with both CurveGlobal and Turquoise Plato going live in September.  In Post Trade, we continue to see good growth in OTC clearing across the SwapClear, CDSClear and ForexClear services. The integration of FTSE Russell is running ahead of schedule and the Information Services business is delivering good results. The Group is financially well positioned as we reduce operating leverage and further strengthen our balance sheet.  

“We remain focused on achieving the necessary regulatory approvals to complete the merger with Deutsche Börse, creating a global markets infrastructure group, which we believe will generate significant value and benefits for customers and shareholders.”
