Commenting on performance for the quarter

David Schwimmer, CEO, LSEG said:

“We continue to execute our strategy across our core businesses of Information Services, Post Trade and Capital Markets. In Post Trade, we acquired a stake in Euroclear, which shares our open access approach, and we updated our SwapClear agreement, which will deliver significant savings as we further develop the service.

“We are investing in and growing our Information Services business, including developing our multi-asset and data and analytics offering. While equity markets were slower due to macroeconomic uncertainty, we have seen an improved listing environment in Q2.

“The Group is strategically well positioned to develop its growth opportunities further in the evolving macroeconomic landscape.”
