LSE launches global equity trading platform, green initiatives

The London Stock Exchange Group PLC launched its Global Equity Segment trading platform for 95 international securities, including U.S. blue chips and Chinese American depositary receipts, or ADRs.

The platform, which has completed its first trade, will reduce time zone risk for investors since it will operate during London trading hours and offer exposure to global securities, according to the bourse's Oct. 15 statement.

LSE also introduced its Green Economy Mark program to recognize companies and investment funds listed on its main market and AIM that source 50% or more of their total annual revenues from products or services that contribute to a green economy, according to an Oct. 11 statement.

Additionally, LSE launched a Sustainable Bond Market, building upon the success of its Green Bond Segment which was initiated in 2015, to include dedicated segments for social and sustainability bonds. The new segments will allow investors to differentiate between multiple types of sustainable bonds.

The stock exchange operator also created an issuer-level segment for bonds by issuers that have their core business operations aligned with the green economy. This will allow eligible green economy companies with more than 90% green revenues to admit their bonds to the Sustainable Bond Market.

Issuers on the Sustainable Bond Market have been mandated to submit annual post-issuance reports so investors will know how the proceeds from their bonds are being used and to denote their continued eligibility to the market over the lifetime of the bonds.
