    London-Shanghai Stock Link Takes a Step Closer to Reality

The London-Shanghai Stock Connect will start later this year, allowing companies from China to sell global depository receipts in the U.K. and enabling London-traded firms to list similar securities in Shanghai, according to the LSE presentation seen by Bloomberg News.

    UK's risk of losing euro clearing after Brexit eases

    The threat of clearing in euro denominated financial contracts being forcibly moved from London to the European Union after Brexit eased on Wednesday after EU lawmakers backed more detailed economic tests for relocation. The EU has proposed a draft law that instructs its regulators to check on "systemic" foreign clearing houses that handle large amounts of euro-denominated assets like interest rate swaps. If a foreign clearing house's home regulator - the Bank of England in the case of Britain - failed to cooperate with EU supervisors, the bloc would require clearing for EU customers to relocate to the EU.

    The chairman of Deutsche Boerse's supervisory board said on Wednesday he would not insist on serving another full three-year term amid criticism that he is partly to blame for management missteps.
