elb2In Today’s Exchange Invest
NEX timetable published for life after ICAP as the CFD ramifications from FCA clampdown trickle down. Moscow Exchange holds major London event, various strands of Indian discussion…and there’s more, happy scrolling:

Congratulatons to MOEX on an excellent event yesterday. Sorry I could not be there but all reports say it was a terrific seminar showcasing the best of MOEX and Russia as an investment destination.. I hope FOW have a good London event today also.

Meanwhile I am in Wroclaw, Poland, for the ImpactCEE FinTech conference which is predicated so far on a curious notion that banks are at the centre of the future… oh well that will soon change. I’m speaking around 1300.

India’s NSE Listing On Track After Resignation Of CEO: Sources

PLY: Continuing the NSE discussion – albeit I find the notion the IPO might even be speeded up to be difficult to rationalize. I mean would the NSE just field an empty chair marked “CEO” on the roadshow and hope that, say, they hope the spectre of Simon Bolivar’s ghost doesn’t sit there as per Hugo Chavez’s Venezuelan cabinet meetings?

I still reckon a modest delay will take place, unfortunately for those shareholders so long frustrated by the slow movement towards an IPO.
