LONDON: London Stock Exchange Group, Europe’s oldest independent bourse, said pre-tax profit for the first half rose 21%, aided primarily by robust growth in its global indexes business FTSE-Russell.

The company, which owns Borsa Italiana, MillenniumIT, Russell Investments and the London Stock Exchange, said the period saw positive underlying results in its information services products, capital markets and Italian post trade divisions.

The 214-year-old exchange group said it would pay an interim dividend of 10.8 pence, up from 9.7 pence last year. — Reuters
