London – Fast Lane of Financial Industry
“I don’t know what London’s coming to – the higher the buildings the lower the morals” (Noël Coward). True or false? As of 2015 London tops the world rankings on the Global Financial Centres index. We visit the epicenter: the London Stoch Exchange. Will that feel like swimming with the sharks? Find out for yourself. Apart from that: in terms of culture, size, economic importance, architecture and academic influence, London has no equal in Europe. Even New York must work hard to keep up.
Legal Program on Friday
London Stock Exchange – Workshop on the Trading Floor
As of December 2014, the London Stock Exchange had a market capitalisation of US$6.06 trillion, making it the largest of Europe and the third-largest in the world. During our visit to the Stock Exchange we will attend the workshop ‘Inside the Markets’.
‘Inside the Markets’ is delivered by experts from within London Stock Exchange to provide an overview of how mature equity markets function, from companies raising capital to how shares are traded, as well as explaining some of the City jargon and seeing live market screens.
The LCIA is one of the world’s leading international institutions for commercial dispute resolution. The LCIA provides efficient, flexible and impartial administration of arbitration and other ADR proceedings, regardless of location, and under any system of law. The international nature of the LCIA’s services is reflected in the fact that, typically, over 80% of parties in pending LCIA cases are not of English nationality.
