Is it possible for the London stock market to clear its dinosaur reputation?

Published

London stock market to shed

There is evidence that the City is finally embracing change, despite criticism for failing to promote innovation and progress.

Global investors have compared London’s stock market to a “global backwater” struggling to attract and maintain emerging companies that thrill investors and help build the 21st-century economy.

However, with a flurry of stock floatations in 2021, including cutting-edge companies like Oxford Nanopore and new listing laws, London’s reputation as a global financial center may improve in 2022.

The FTSE 100 index of blue-chip businesses currently appears to be outdated. Technology accounts for only approximately 2% of the London market, compared to 20% across worldwide markets. “This means London is ten times underweight in the area of the economy that is developing quicker. And attracts high values,” says Simon French, Panmure Gordon’s chief economist.

“With the greatest respect to Sage and Micro Focus, if you’re an investor looking to invest in growth, you don’t have a lot of options on the UK public market.”

The City of London risked becoming “a sort of Jurassic Park,” according to Paul Marshall. The CEO of the £40 million ($55 million) hedge fund Marshall Wace. Who wrote in the Financial Times that fund managers were content to collect dividends from ponderous old economy players rather than encouraging and rewarding innovation.

French points out that while liquidity in the US market has increased since the financial crisis. It has more than halved on the FTSE All-Share, deterring some fund managers from investing in London.

“Because performance begets liquidity, which begets performance,” French adds, “London’s underperformance can lead to a vicious spiral.” Recent assessments of the UK’s listing process, he believes, have failed to address the liquidity problem.

The FTSE 100 has been compared by James Anderson, joint manager of Baillie Gifford’s Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust and an early investor in key US tech stocks such as Tesla. To a 19th-century stock market, which is rich in banking and energy stocks but severely lacking in actual innovation.

“The move from floor trading to where we are currently will not come to a halt.”

To some extent, 24-hour trading is already possible during the working week. With bourses in Asia-Pacific markets, Europe, and New York covering the majority of time zones. However, many equities are list on only one exchange. And individual businesses’ liquidity is more robust when their local dialogue is open.

Nonstop trading can be exhausting for equities traders, but it’s nothing that other industries haven’t dealt with before. “Why can’t traders work three shifts a day like the caandustry?” Miller makes a point.
