LSEG-Refinitiv: The Day After

London Stock Exchange Group announced its $27 billion bid for Refinitiv yesterday. What is the Twitterverse saying about the deal?

For one, the buy side is a target demographic.

The deal is a boon for Refinitiv bondholders, as LSEG has a stronger credit rating.

 

The combined company will make a splash in the new-issue market.

Regulators are being asked to review whether the combination will boost market data costs.

For London, the deal is a bullish move amid the bearish backdrop of Brexit.

A recurring theme is that LSEG-Refinitiv is very much a data-driven deal.

Lots of accolades on the deal this week, but integration won’t be easy…

…Hence Friday’s stock market action.
