A bridge across the Atlantic

The Americas are an increasingly important region for London Stock Exchange Group and now contribute a substantial portion of the Group’s total income. As the owner of the world leading index business FTSE Russell, which produces the well-known US equity benchmark Russell 2000, we have almost 700 staff in locations throughout the Americas.

Our range of markets – including for AIM and the world-renowned Main Market for equity listings - support more international companies than any other exchange in the world. There are over 130 companies listed in London where the majority of their operations are in the Americas, representing every sector. We offer strong support for companies from growth sectors such as technology and life sciences, especially through AIM, our growth market with a 25 year track record. We have also been able to attract US asset managers keen to execute fund listings on the Premium or Specialist Fund Segments of the Main Market. Furthermore, an increasing number of North American listed natural resources companies have added a London listing in recent years. Finally, through the International Securities Market and Sustainable Bond Market, we offer issuers a flexible and efficient pathway to list sustainable and / or conventional debt securities.

LSEG has the expertise to guide potential issuers through the difficulties of the capital raising process. We help companies achieve their financing objectives and establish a platform for future growth by making the right connections with professional advisers.
