Exchanges Sector In Midst Of Disruptive Forces And Innovation - Euronext Joins FTSE Mondo Visione Index

Date 19/08/2014

With just three months until leaders from the global exchanges sector meet in London for the Mondo Visione Exchange Forum, the sector is in a period of unprecedented change in the global financial markets. However, this is not yet being seen in the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index, which has experienced six months of stagnation.

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 3.1 per cent increase in July 2014.

Commenting on the Index which closed up at 30,120.48 on 31 July 2014, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“The decision by MSCI to upgrade the UAE to emerging market status from frontier markets, which took effect in June, gave a strong boost to regional markets and the DFM has profited from this.

“Capital market reforms enacted in the UAE in July are also expected to improve cross border capital flows. The MCX has resolved its ownership issue and corporate governance issues have been largely resolved. It remains to be seen whether this is an inflexion point for the MCX.”

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Dubai Financial Market with a 31.4 per cent increase in share price from 30 June to 31 July 2014. The next best performer was India’s Multi Commodity Exchange with a 30.8 per cent increase over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was the Bulgarian Stock Exchange with a 22.6 per cent decrease in share price from 30 June to 31 July 2014. This was followed by the Moscow Exchange with a 19.8 per cent decrease over the same period.

Euronext joined the Index on Friday 27 June. Its share price closed down 3.1 per cent on 31 July 2014.
