Outlook

The Group has delivered a good H1 performance in a period marked by volatile market conditions.  With growth in all of our core business areas, particularly at LCH and in our Information Services division including FTSE Russell, there remains good ongoing demand for our services.  

The Group is well diversified by business activity and geography, with operations in the UK, continental Europe, United States and Asia.  By successfully operating a full range of open access market infrastructure services, we are well positioned to navigate political and macroeconomic changes.  We remain focused on the all share merger with Deutsche Börse and are working towards achieving the further approvals needed for completion of the transaction.
