London Stock Exchange Group’s CFO, David Warren, officially opened London trading on Monday 5 November to mark the listing of the Group’s inaugural retail bond (LSE1).
The 9 year sterling denominated 4.75% bonds raised £300 million and is the largest corporate bond to be issued through London Stock Exchange’s Order book for Retail Bonds (ORB) to date. ORB was launched in February 2010 in response to strong private investor demand for greater access to fixed income products. Over £2.7 billion has been raised on the platform since it was founded.
