Driven by success

More than 800 companies have joined ELITE programme, LSEG’s business support and capital raising programme for ambitious private companies, since it was set up in 2012. Today, ELITE has expanded into 27 countries, including China and Brazil. The most recent expansion – announced in February 2018 – brought the programme to Saudi Arabia. In total, the companies that have joined the ELITE programme generate more than £55bn in revenues and account for more than 250,000 jobs. The programme marked another milestone in March 2018, when IntegraFin Holdings became the first ELITE company to list on the Main Market in London.
