Products and customers
The combination of NASDAQ and LSE will provide exchange users with an opportunity to capitalise on growth in the cash equities market on both sides of the Atlantic. The product enhancements and efficiencies which can be generated from the combination of the two organisations platforms will bring substantial benefits to exchange users, whether corporate issuers or investors who trade on the NASDAQ and LSE markets. In addition, the combined group will be a key market information services and analytics provider, with distribution to a greater aggregate customer base.
