What is the London Stock Exchange (LON)?

The London Stock Exchange (LSE) is the primary stock exchange in the United Kingdom and the largest in Europe. Originated more than 300 years ago, the regional exchanges were merged in 1973 to form the Stock Exchange of Great Britain and Ireland, later renamed the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The Financial Times Stock Exchange (FTSE) 100 Share Index, or “Footsie”, is the dominant index, containing 100 of the top blue-chip stocks on the LSE.

The stock exchange is physically located in the city of London. In 2007, the London Stock Exchange merged with the Milan Stock Exchange, the Borsa Italiana, to form the London Stock Exchange Group.

What do you need to know about the London Stock Exchange?

  • The London Stock Exchange (LSE) is one of the oldest stock exchanges in the world, the largest in Europe, and the primary stock exchange of the United Kingdom.
  • The “Big Bang” refers to the government’s deregulation of the London stock market on Oct. 27, 1986, an event that led to a modernized electronic trading system and opened up the LSE to capital markets worldwide.

How does the London Stock Exchange (LSE) work?

London has been one of the world’s leading financial cities for several centuries and is known as a center for international trading, banking and insurance.

History of the LON

Looking at the history of the London Stock Exchange we have to go back to the year 1698. In this year, broker John Castaing chose to quote the prices of commodities and stocks. These activities took place in Jonathan’s Coffee House, at that time a popular meeting place for high level businessmen with the aim to trade. This first indexing was called “The Price of the Stock Exchange and Other Things” by Castaing.

The beginning steps of an English stock exchange had been made. A good 100 years later, it was concluded that a formal system was needed to prevent unscrupulous traders and common fraud. There had to be a regulated stock exchange in London. After several brokers agreed on a set of rules and membership fees, this was the birth of the first regulated stock exchange in the United Kingdom.

Through its primary markets, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) provides cost-effective access to some of the world’s deepest and most liquid pools of capital. It hosts a wide range of companies and provides electronic share trading for listed companies.

The LSE is the most international of all exchanges with thousands of companies from over 60 countries, and it is the leading source of equity market liquidity, benchmark prices and market data in Europe. The LSE is connected to international exchanges in Asia and Africa through partnerships and is committed to removing cost and regulatory barriers to capital markets around the world.

Big Bang & the LSE

October 27, 1986, the day the government in the United Kingdom chose to deregulate the LON. This event is also known as the “Big Bang”, an appropriate name because of the enormous changes it resulted in. With the biggest arrowhead, the transition to electronic trading on the London Stock Exchange. This marked a departure from traditional open outcry trading.

With this new system, a more efficient and faster way of trading was established, trading volumes increased immediately and it became a tolerated competitor to other major exchanges around the world including the NYSEA & NYSE.

The Big Bang was part of the government’s reform program aimed at countering overregulation and encouraging more natural competition in the free market. In addition to this transition, other significant changes were made to the structure of financial markets, including:

  • Elimination of separation between firms that trade stocks and those that advise investors
  • Abolition of fixed minimum commissions on transactions

Competition between different brokers increased tremendously which led in a good number of mergers and acquisitions. Another development that should not be forgotten is the admission of foreign properties of brokers in the UK. This opened up the London Stock Exchange to international banks.

Is the London Stock Exchange regulated?

  • Main Market is London Stock Exchange’s Regulated Market, with disclosure rules aligned to Prospectus Regulation. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) approves Prospectuses for admission to the Main Market. As a Regulated Market, securities admitted to other Regulated Markets can be passported onto the Main Market. LSEG works closely with the FCA and key advisers on deals to provide an efficient listing process that best suits the needs of issuers.
  • International Securities Market (ISM) is LSEG’s Exchange Regulated Market and operates as a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) under UK law. ISM operates under its own Rulebook, which provides for tailored Admission and Disclosure requirements.

ISM’s dedicated and knowledgeable Primary Markets Regulation team is responsible for reviewing Admission Particulars and assessing the eligibility of issuers and their securities for admission to ISM.

LSE Listing Requirements

The different divisions all have different listing requirements. AIM has the least-restrictive standards and Main Market Premium is the most demanding in terms of requirements.

Main Market Premium companies can be located anywhere and must file a prospectus and eligibility letter with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the U.K. independent financial regulatory agency and have a listing sponsor. They must have at least 25% free float and 75% of the business must be supported by a revenue of at least three years.

Standard Main Market companies can be located anywhere, must file a prospectus with the FCA and have at least 25% free float.

Main Market High Growth Segment companies have to be in the U.K. or Europe, submit an eligibility letter to the exchange and a prospectus to the FCA, have at least 10% float and have posted at least 20% compound annual growth for three years.

AIM companies can be located anywhere and must submit an admission document and declaration of suitability from a nominated adviser, which is a financial services firm approved by the LSE work with AIM companies

Frequently asked questions

Investors can invest in securities traded on the LSE in a variety of ways, including opening an account with a foreign stockbroker or international broker, buying American Depositary Receipts for LSE issues, or trading Contracts for Difference (CFD) for LSE-listed shares.

The easiest way to trade LSE issues is to open an account with an international broker that is a member of the LSE. All brokers in the equation support access to the London Stock Exchange.

This allows investors located anywhere to trade LSE shares in the form of global depositary receipts. However, these accounts typically require significant minimum deposits.

Another approach preferred by many U.S. investors is to trade ADRs backed by LSE securities. These are listed on U.S. exchanges. However, not all LSE companies will have ADRs.

London Stock Exchange trading hours are from 8:00 to 16:30.

The Order Book is simply a two-column listing of buyers and sellers. In one column you find investors willing to buy at a specific price. In the other column investors willing to sell. The buy and sell columns are both arranged on a price/time priority basis. It means that the highest price someone is willing to pay will be at the top of the buy column. Similarly, the lowest price someone is willing to sell is at the top of the sell column.

London Stock Exchange’s Order Book attracts the largest trading volumes for the majority of UK stocks. To access and benefit from the Order Book, you need to open an account with a online broker offering Direct Market Access. All the online brokers you will see in our comparison are provided with the LON order book.

The London Stock Exchange’s Main Market is one of the most diverse equity markets in the world, with companies across 40 different sectors. A listing on the LSE’s Main Market gives companies access to real-time quotes, large pools of capital, benchmarking through the FTSE UK Index Series, and significant media coverage, research and announcements.

The Premium segment applies only to shares issued by commercial trading companies. Issuers that have a Premium listing must comply with the UK’s super-equity rules, which are more stringent than the European Union (EU) minimum requirements. These higher standards mean that Premium-listed companies have access to lower costs of capital and to investors looking for companies that meet the highest standards. A Premium-listed company also has the opportunity to be included in one of the FTSE indices.

The Standard segment is open to the issuance of shares, Global Depositary Receipts (GDRs), debt securities and derivatives that must meet EU minimum requirements. The overall compliance burden is lighter for companies with a standard listing. A standard listing helps emerging market companies attract investment from the large London pool of available capital.

Other segments

The Growth Segment and the Specialty Funds Segment are designed specifically for high-growth, income-generating companies and highly specialized investment entities that cater to institutional investors or professionally advised investors, respectively. The Growth Segment is designed for companies that do not qualify for a Premium or Standard listing, but seek funding to grow their business.

London Stock Exchange is not open to the public. Following deregulation in 1986 known as the ‘Big Bang’, the traditional system of open outcry on the stock exchange trading floor was replaced by electronic trading. As such, London Stock Exchange no longer has a trading floor.
