19 October 2017

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

“The Group continues to perform very well, with good revenue growth in our main businesses and a strong period of successful development and delivery.  The completion of the acquisition of Citi Fixed Income Indices and The Yield Book is already contributing to the further growth in FTSE Russell while LCH continues to perform strongly and has launched innovative new services.  I am also delighted that we are increasing our stake in the LCH Group.

"The Group’s excellent financial performance is reflective of our continued innovation and execution of our growth strategy, enabling us to deliver against our three year financial targets.  Together with our proven Customer Partnership and Open Access approach, this positions us strongly to benefit from the introduction of MiFID II in less than three months time."
