John Lothian News Interview - 2016 Exchange CEO Series: LSE’s David Weisbrod Talks Clearing And Openness

The London Stock Exchange Group has been in the headlines of late for its proposed merger with Deutsche Boerse Group, and perhaps another suitor, but until then LSEG's David Weisbrod says there is much to do in the meantime.

Weisbrod, who serves a dual role as US country head of the USA for LSEG and CEO of LCH.Clearnet US, has been focused on providing more access to customers to the London market and its clearing facility.

"We're a big believer in open access, which enables market participants to use whichever clearing house they want or whichever exchange they want as it meets their own needs," Weisbrod told John Lothian News at the FIA Boca Conference. "We don't have a vertical silo which binds the participants to use the clearing house, the exchange, or vice versa."
