The Americas is an increasingly important region for London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) and now contributes a substantial portion of our revenue. LSEG is the owner of the world leading index business FTSE Russell, which produces the well known US equity benchmark the Russell 2000, among other indices, and we have almost 500 staff in the region in major office locations throughout North and Latin America.

Our range of markets - including AIM, the Professional Securities Market, and the world-renowned Main Market - support more international companies than any other exchange in the world. There are over 150 Americas companies from many sectors listed in London, and collectively they are worth over US$1.9 trillion. We offer strong support for companies from growth sectors such as technology and life sciences, especially through our small cap focused growth exchange, AIM. Our track record in natural resources is compelling and we have also been able to attract US asset managers to execute fund listings in London on our robust fund market.

LSEG have the expertise to guide potential issuers through the difficulties of the capital raising process and make the right connections with professional advisers who can help them achieve their financing objectives and establish a platform for future growth and liquidity. We stand ready to be your partner and sounding board from the very earliest stage of the process. Please do not hesitate to get in touch using the contact details below.
