Exchanges Sector Demonstrates Strong Q3 Performance - FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Up 4.2 Per Cent In Q3 Against 1.8 Per Cent In Q2 - Strong Growth Of 26.7% Over Past 12 Months

Date 16/10/2013

On the back of strong ‘buy’ recommendations for exchange shares, amongst global equity strategists, retail investors should still be looking at the exchanges sector as it finishes Q3, up by 4.2 per cent.

Publicly listed exchanges in the Northern Hemisphere performed well during the hot Summer of Q3, with Romania’s Bursa de Valori Bucuresti leading the board with a 39.6 per cent increase in share value. Spain’s Bolsas y Mercados Espanoles and the London Stock Exchange made the top three with 29.8 per cent and 22.7 per cent increases respectively, in share price value.

These three exchanges also lead the board in terms of their performance improvement on Q3 2013 over Q3 2012.

The biggest loser in the league table war is certainly Multi Commodity Exchange of India with a 52.9 per cent loss in share value during Q3 2013 and this compared to a 15.5 per cent share value loss in Q2 2013.

Japan Exchanges Group should stay on the “one to watch” list with continued steady results being achieved. The exchange’s share value increased by 39.8 per cent during September and this performance is mirrored throughout the year with the strongest constituent year-to-date increase of 122.6 per cent.

Overall, the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchange Index has experienced a 19.8 per cent increase year-to-date.

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 5.7 per cent increase in September 2013.

Commenting on the Index which closed up at 27,225.60 on 30 September 2013, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“In the past year the world of exchange M&A has become very interesting with mergers and acquisitions of data companies, investor relations solution companies, clearing houses and other parts of the value chain. Smart, transformative deals are becoming the norm.”

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Japan Exchange Group with a 39.8 per cent increase in share price from 30 August to 30 September 2013. The next best performers were Greece’s Hellenic Exchanges SA and Dubai Financial Market, each with share price increases of 17.6 per cent and 13.9 per cent respectively, over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was CBOE Holdings with a 1.4 per cent decrease in share price from 30 August to 30 September 2013. This was followed by Philippine Stock Exchange and NYSE Euronext both achieving a 0.4 per cent increase over the same period.
