    BlackRock opposes banning companies from indexes over voting rights

    BlackRock Inc (BLK.N), the world's largest asset manager, is lambasting the architects of market indexes like the S&P 500 (.SPX) for ostracizing companies that deny equal voting rights to shareholders, saying that doing so could limit the opportunities of investors in index funds. Snap Inc (SNAP.N), the parent company of messaging app Snapchat, made waves when it went public in a $3.4 billion (£2.5 billion) offering last March with a class of common stock granting no voting rights, and it was later excluded from some market indexes. BlackRock has said it supports all shareholders getting an equal vote.

    London Stock Exchange CEO Rolet to step down by end of 2018

    Xavier Rolet, chief executive of the London Stock Exchange Group (LSE.L), will step down at the end of next year, just under a decade after he took charge and transformed the company with a string of deals. Rolet has broadened the exchange's focus beyond share trading into derivatives and data through these acquisitions, including clearing house LCH and global indexes firm Russell. Rolet, who joined the group from Lehman Brothers, said last year that he would leave if a merger with Deutsche Boerse went through.

    Capital rules 'exacerbating' clearing house risks -CFTC commissioner

    WASHINGTON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 17 (Reuters) - Bank capital rules are concentrating risk inside the clearing system and making clearing houses increasingly systemically important, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's Brian Quintenz said on Tuesday. Speaking at a conference hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the Republican commissioner warned that capital rules known as the supplementary leverage ratio have made it too expensive for banks to provide clearing services, leading many to pull out of the business.

    LME to slash some fees to win back volumes as rivals circle

    The London Metal Exchange sought on Thursday to win back trading volumes by proposing a cut in fees for trades crucial to its physical user base as rivals gear up to offer alternatives. The exchange has been battling to reverse declines in volumes partly triggered by large rises in trading fees in 2015 that were introduced to lift profits for its Hong Kong owner. It was also moving before next year's launch of metals trading platform NFEx Markets.

    London copper on Wednesday morning touched a high of $6,515 per tonne, a price level last seen in December 2014.

    Clearing houses get ultimatum to fix serious "shortcomings"

    Global regulators warned on Wednesday of shortcomings in efforts to ensure that clearing houses can recover from a crisis without a meltdown in the financial system or a taxpayer bailout. A number of gaps have been identified at clearing houses which warrant immediate high priority action, the regulators said, adding that gaps in compliance with rules for preventing them from becoming too-big-to-fail must be plugged by December. This has led to a sharp growth in volumes passing through a clearing house, a third party that ensures a trade is completed, even if one side of the transaction goes bust.

    LME's hunt for elusive volumes could cause more shrinkage, risk benchmark

    The London Metal Exchange (LME) is intent on enticing more investors to halt a slide in trading volumes, but users fear its plans could cause further erosion and even shake the foundations of its benchmark contracts. Copper volumes in the first four months of 2017 on the CME Group leapt 21 percent over the same period last year, while the LME posted a drop of more than 7 percent. The LME's benchmark three-month contracts - the lifeblood of the market - are used as reference prices in contracts around the world by traders, consumers and producers for buying and selling copper, aluminium, zinc, lead and nickel.

    CME Group shuts loss-making London derivatives and clearing units

"While Europe continues to be a critically important and expanding market for CME Group ... our customers have shown that they prefer to access our global products, deep liquidity and greater capital efficiencies through our U.S. infrastructure," William Knottenbelt, CME Group senior managing director, international, said in a statement.

    LME reform controversy highlights divisions between members

    The London Metal Exchange (LME) is considering reforming its complex structure of trading to lure funds and reverse falling volumes, laying bare a schism between those wanting change and core traditional members who do not. By early next month, the 140-year-old British institution that sets global benchmark prices for industrial metals such as copper and aluminium will publish a discussion paper that is expected to include the offer of a simpler alternative to its intricate three-month date structure, sources say. A hike in trading fees two years ago drove many LME regulars to the over-the-counter markets, precipitating a 7.7 percent fall in trading volumes last year and 4.3 percent the year before and forcing the exchange to consider its future.

Gerard Rameix, chairman of France's AMF markets watchdog, said the "equivalence" regime - whereby Brussels grants market access to firms from non-EU countries governed by similar rules - must be adapted specifically for Britain, which is set to leave the European Union.

    ICE delays launch of clearing for London gold benchmark - sources

    Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE - news) (ICE) has delayed the launch of clearing for London's benchmark gold price because not all participants in the auction will be ready, two sources involved in the process said on Tuesday. The delay could weaken its bid to become the dominant exchange in London's $5 trillion-a-year bullion market, sources say. ICE had already pushed back the start of clearing to April 3 to allow the 14 banks and brokers that participate in the auction time to get necessary IT and back-office systems in place.
