We’ve been a key contributor to the world’s financial markets for more than 300 years.
London Stock Exchange can trace its history back to 1698 and it came into existence as a regulated entity in 1801. A little more recently, 165 years ago, the foundations for Refinitiv were put in motion when, in 1851, Paul Julius Reuter solved a key finance data challenge - using pigeons to carry stock market quotations between Aachen and Brussels, until a reliable telegraph link became available.
