We’ve had a very successful start to 2022, delivering a strong first quarter of growth, and building on the foundations of our already robust and innovative pan-European trading ecosystem to further enhance connectivity and expand our partner network.
I’m particularly pleased to see European retail investors clearly remain very active in international markets, underlining our confidence that this trend is more permanent, and highlighting the important role securitised derivatives can play in their portfolios.
