Strong Signs Of Recovery In Exchanges Sector - FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Closes At Its Highest Since May 2008

Date 23/12/2013

The exchanges sector is riding a wave which could demonstrate a steady recovery is underway in the financial markets. Year-to-date, share values of publicly listed exchanges have increased significantly, with a 30.9 per cent increase in the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index.

This compares to a minimal increase in the Index of 8 per cent to 30 November 2012, and a 17.7 per cent decrease, in the year to 30 November 2011.

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 5.6 per cent increase in November 2013.

Commenting on the Index which closed up at 29,738.53 on 29 November 2013, the highest closing value since May 2008, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“This has been a good month for the Index. The current levels have not been seen since June 2008. Predicting the future is always a mug’s game but one thing is for sure - 2014 will be another year of change, innovation and survival of the fittest in the world of trading venues.”

Following the acquisition of NYSE Euronext by IntercontinentalExchange Group on November 13th, NYSE Euronext has been removed from the Index.
