    UPDATE 3-EU-Swiss stock exchange sanctions loom as talks stall

    BRUSSELS/ZURICH, June 18 (Reuters) - Swiss exchanges risk losing direct access to European Union investors from July 1 in a potential blow to Switzerland's financial industry after the bloc said on Tuesday there had been no progress in talks with Bern over a new partnership treaty. The Swiss government said it will retaliate with measures to defend Swiss stock exchanges if the EU blocks their access to its investors, saying talks on a partnership treaty should not be linked to the so-called equivalence regime. Swiss-EU relations suffered in 1992 when Swiss voters rejected joining the European Economic Area, leading to a negotiated patchwork of 120 accords that now govern ties.

    U.K.'s Hammond Hails Start of London-Shanghai Stock Connect

    (Bloomberg) -- U.K.-listed companies will be able to sell shares in China starting Monday as a new London-Shanghai stock link opens for business. It will be the first time foreign companies are able to list in mainland China, the U.K. government said in a statement.“Stock Connect is a ground-breaking initiative, which will deepen our global connectivity as we look outwards to new opportunities in Asia,” U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond will say as he launches the initiative’s first day of trading at the London Stock Exchange.Monday’s opening will give investors in London the opportunity to trade global depositary receipts for Huatai, the technology-enabled securities group in China.The London-Shanghai Stock Connect has taken four years to prepare. It’s beginning at a sensitive time, with Britain’s government in turmoil after Prime Minister Theresa May resigned over her failure to complete the U.K.’s divorce from the European Union.A contest is under way to elect her successor as leader of the U.K.’s ruling Conservative Party, and the outcome of that race is set to have a profound impact on the direction of British trade policy with the EU and the rest of the world.Deepening trade links with Asia is a key U.K. goal as it leaves the EU, and Hammond will celebrate the Stock Connect launch when he welcomes Vice Premier Hu Chunhua and a delegation from the Chinese government to London for talks on Monday.To contact the reporter on this story: Tim Ross in London at tross54@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Flavia Krause-Jackson at fjackson@bloomberg.net, Steve GeimannFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Long-awaited London-Shanghai share listing project goes live

    Companies listed in Britain will be able to sell shares in China on Monday with the launch of a long-awaited London-Shanghai Stock Connect project that finance minister Philip Hammond called a chance to deepen "global connectivity". Under the Connect scheme, Shanghai-listed companies can raise new funds via London's stock market while British companies can broaden their investor base by selling existing shares in Shanghai. The project was intended to begin late last year with the December listing of Chinese brokerage Huatai, backed by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. But the listing was delayed at the last minute.

    Euroclear CEO considering IPO in review, rules out mergers

    Euroclear is open to a "fundamental transformation", either through a listing or placing shares with major investors, but is ruling out a merger, the chief executive of Europe's biggest stock and bond settlement house said. Euroclear is a cornerstone of Europe's financial plumbing, ensuring the completion of securities transactions worth 791 trillion euros ($893 trillion) last year. It looked after nearly 29 trillion euros of assets in 2018, about half the European settlement market, and announced in March it has hired Goldman Sachs to look at strategic options, barely a year after Lieve Mostrey became its chief executive.

    UPDATE 1-London Stock Exchange CEO says 'hard to think' about big mergers

    Big cross-border mergers in stock exchanges look "hard" given political opposition to opening up bourses to foreign ownership, London Stock Exchange Group Chief Executive David Schwimmer said on Wednesday. "There have been some big painful failures out there in the industry," Schwimmer told the annual FIA IDX derivatives industry conference. The LSE has failed several times to merge with rival Deutsche Boerse, the most recent attempt ending with Schwimmer's appointment as CEO last August.

    EU's markets watchdog warns of split share trading if no-deal Brexit

    European Union preparations for a no-deal Brexit would split stock markets in Europe, although the damage could be reduced if Britain spelled out in advance its approach to trading, a top EU regulator said on Tuesday. The EU angered market participants in March when it said that if there is a 'no-deal' Brexit, investors in the bloc would only be able to trade shares which are listed in continental Europe as well as 14 which have a listing in Britain. London is the centre for share trading in Europe, even for many non-UK shares, leaving EU asset managers facing a split pool of liquidity and less competitive prices.

    London must not become offshore centre post Brexit - CFTC chair

    Policymakers should "tether" London to the European Union to avoid isolating the region's largest financial hub, harming the euro zone economy and spawning an offshore financial centre, the head of the U.S. derivatives watchdog said. "It is clear that London is shedding, and will continue to shed, a not insignificant amount of its financial service offerings and specialties to other European financial centers as a result of Brexit," Christopher Giancarlo, chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), said on Tuesday. Banks, insurers and asset managers using London as a gateway to investors across the EU have opened hubs in Dublin, Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Luxembourg to maintain customer links.

    FTSE Russell says China shares inclusion in indexes on track

    FTSE Russell is forging ahead with plans to add Chinese "A shares" to its widely-tracked global benchmarks next month, a senior executive said, as China's resolve to open its capital markets appears unaffected by an ongoing trade war with the United States. "There is no doubt some foreign investors feel uncertainty and volatility under this current political climate," Jessie Pak, Asia Managing Director for the global index publisher, told Reuters in an interview on Friday. Trade tensions between the world's top two economies has roiled Chinese stock markets and the yuan currency, sapping foreigners' appetite for China assets in recent weeks.

    Shanghai-London stock exchange tie-up faces more delays - sources

    A tie-up between London and Shanghai to allow Chinese firms to raise money on the UK stock market and British firms to sell shares in China is facing a long delay and is not likely to happen this year, sources close to the matter said. The Shanghai-London Stock Connect project started in 2015 and was embraced by the London Stock Exchange as one that would give Britain a lead in tapping Chinese investors who are currently not able to invest overseas. It would also allow companies on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) to launch secondary offerings in London.
