When Jonathan Jachym started at the London Stock Exchange Group stateside about three years ago, there were some 250 employees, most based in new York. Now, the group’s head of North American regulatory strategy and government relations has some 700 U.S.-based coworkers in six different locations. The personnel growth was matched in 2017 with revenue up across all core businesses, with its FTSE Russell and LCH arms doing particularly well.
In this video from JLN’s annual series with industry leaders, Jachym talks about compression becoming a natural part of a swap’s trading life cycle, how the group benefits from passive investing trends and the key issue facing the group and its customers – cross-border regulatory frameworks.
