PLY: “Our guiding principle is the key word “Börse 4.0”.” The only tricky bit being I don’t believe that keyword has been mentioned outside of the German media…(this article is translated from something delivered to the good folks of Boersen Zeitung). Perhaps a restructuring back to ““Börse 1.0” might be a good idea first before moving ahead?
Then again maybe “Börse 4.0” is strategy code for the result after another failed bid for LSE?
(A bond trading wag writes: “What’s the difference between Arsene Wenger and Carsten Kenegeter? Well, at least Wenger won something before his string of humiliating defeats.” …for American readers immune to the concept of kickball, fret not, I don’t get the joke either).
The Benefits Of Good Governance
PLY: Article by David Harris, Head of Sustainable Business at LSE, a title which clearly raises the question valid for a bourse under short-termist investment banker management, who heads up Unsustainable Business?*
*Cue a full inbox of folks claiming it’s akin to a ponzi scheme over at Paternoster Square… However you regard that opinion, clearly maintaining that frothy LSE PE multiple is now a challenge.

PLY: The DB1 successor to Neuer Markt is born and of course now likely bereft of any tie up with LSE which means DB1 is somewhat on its own and the platform will be at the whims of who can champion it when the economic cycle turns down. Last time every executive director saw short-term career implications as better than the long-term benefit of DB1. What has changed under the investment banker CEO Carsten Kengeter to make anybody believe this time it’s different?
