FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Down 2.7 % In March, London Stock Exchange Group Down By 28.8% On Refinitiv Integration Fears, Index Down 0.5 % In Q1 2021, Up 35.3% Over 12 Months

Date 12/04/2021

The implosion of Archegos caused wide-spread chaos on markets amidst concerns on the potential contagion effect that the sell-off could have on global equity markets where sentiments have recently been dampened by surging bond yields.

Despite returning a solid set of figures for full-year 2020, London Stock Exchange Group's (LSEG's) updated guidance for operating costs and capital expenditure for 2021 provided a strong indication of the challenges that are still to come with integrating Refinitiv, and this had a negative impact on the LSEG share price and performance in March.

The three months to the end of March saw the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index down by 0.5%. Aquis Exchange was the best performing exchange in the quarter with Croatia's Zagrebacka Burza dd being the worst performer.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index ended the month down 2.7% at 72,106.76 points, down from 74,105.97 on 26 February 2021.

Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Group ended March as the world's largest exchange operator by market capitalisation.

The top 5 exchanges by market capitalisation at end March were:

Exchange Market Cap (USD bn)
Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing 74.59
CME Group 72.36
Intercontinental Exchange 61.74
London Stock Exchange Group 34.60
Deutsche Boerse 30.55

Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

"The market has given its initial assessment of London Stock Exchange Group's purchase of Refinitiv and that assessment is reflected in the LSEG's position in this month's performance table."
