London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE expands to Malta
London Stock Exchange Group yesterday announced that its successful international business support programme, ELITE, is welcoming a further 25 companies, with service industry provider, Ozo Group becoming the first Maltese company on ELITE.
To celebrate, the new ELITE international company CEOs opened trading on London’s markets yesterday morning, alongside Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group and Luca Peyrano, CEO, ELITE. From today, over 450 companies are part of the growing international ELITE community, generating €39 billion in combined revenues and accounting for over 170,000 jobs across Europe and beyond.
ELITE is actively partnering and collaborating with the international financial community, including banks and other stock exchanges in Europe and Africa, reinforcing LSEG’s Open Access philosophy. Last week, ELITE signed an agreement with Budapest Stock Exchange to launch a tailored ELITE programme in Hungary. ELITE also continues to work with Uni Credit, the Italian global banking and financial services company, to attract new companies, specifically from CEE countries, to the programme.
Luca Peyrano, CEO, ELITE said: “Today’s new ELITE companies showcase the fantastic businesses developing across Europe. ELITE will give them access to a community of leading investors, advisers, peers and business mentors, helping them to achieve their full potential. In turn, their innovation, job creation and growth can transform the economies in which they operate. ELITE, together with its partners, is committed to creating a community where the business stars of the future can come together and thrive.”
