    Amsterdam attracts more trading firms seeking post-Brexit EU base - source

    LONDON/TOKYO (Reuters) - At least 20 financial firms are applying for licenses to operate in Amsterdam in preparation for Britain's departure from the European Union, a source with knowledge of the matter said. Amsterdam has been competing aggressively with Frankfurt, Paris and Dublin to attract business from London, all of which have chalked up recent major relocation wins. In addition to major players such as Chicago's Cboe Global Markets (CBOE.O) and the London Stock Exchange Group (LSE.L), a handful of small trading firms are seeking to set up operations in Amsterdam, the source told Reuters.

    Top U.S. regulator calls for "reset" in relations with other countries

    How the United States supervises cross-border derivatives is flawed and needs resetting to avoid fragmenting markets and placing undue burden on companies, a top U.S. regulator said on Tuesday. In a speech that will be widely seen as targeting the European Union, Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman Christopher Giancarlo said the agency was guilty of overreach by regulating firms that were not based in the United States but did business with U.S. customers. This "overly expansive, unduly complex" approach has shown insufficient deference to other countries even though they comply with the same international standards applied in the United States.

    German official pours cold water over UK call for broad EU banking access

    Britain's call for the European Union to widen its system of financial market access after Brexit won't be met anytime soon, a senior German finance ministry official has said. Britain wants future EU financial market access based on an "enhanced" or broader version of the bloc's "equivalence" regime, which grants access to countries with regulations determined by Brussels to be sufficiently aligned with EU rules. The system is used by banks in the United States, Singapore and Japan to offer some services directly to clients in the EU without the need for a costly subsidiary on the ground.

    Aston Martin plans to go public as turnaround picks up speed

    Luxury carmaker Aston Martin plans to float on the London Stock Exchange, completing a turnaround for the once perennially loss-making company that could now be valued at up to 5 billion pounds ($6.4 billion). The 105-year old firm, famed for making the sports car driven by fictional secret agent James Bond, would become the first British carmaker to list in London for years, following the sale of brands such as Jaguar and Bentley to foreign owners. The initial public offering (IPO), which follows Italian rival Ferrari's New York flotation in 2015, could see Aston valued at up to 5 billion pounds, sources have told Reuters, after it expanded its model line-up and production.

Bloomberg reported last month that Africa’s richest man was considering an offering after Nigerian elections early next year.

    CME to launch Libor-substitute contract linked to BoE rate meetings

    CME Group has said it will launch a ground-breaking futures contract linked to Bank of England interest rate meetings as part of global efforts to scrap use of the Libor benchmark that banks sought to manipulate. The BoE wants the market to substitute Libor in financial contracts such as interest rate futures with its own "risk-free" interest rate known as Sonia or Sterling Overnight Index Average. The CME's "monetary policy committee" Sonia futures contract will have critical dates that align with when the BoE's rate setting panel meets, the Chicago-headquartered bourse said.

    En+ Group (ENPLq.L), hit by U.S. sanctions against Russia in April, said on Thursday it was investigating the possibility of re-domiciling from Britain's Jersey to one of Russia's new offshore zones.

En+ also said on Thursday that its board had already approved a move from Cyprus to Russia of one of its subsidiaries - En+ Holding Limited - which manages the group's energy division.

    China Pushes for Arbitrage Cap on London Stock Link

    China wants to impose restrictions on the London-Shanghai Stock Connect that would help authorities curb capital outflows but may reduce the program’s appeal to investors, people familiar with the matter said. The proposed restrictions would limit investors’ ability to swap a dual-listed company’s shares in one market with those in the other, a feature known as fungibility, the people said, asking not to be identified because the discussions are confidential and no final decisions have been made. Fungibility was a key selling point in a London Stock Exchange Group Plc presentation outlining plans for the connect in May.

    FTSE slides to one-month low, Rolls-Royce powers ahead

    Britain's top share index slid on Thursday, touching a one-week low as shares in heavyweight cyclicals dropped, though Rolls-Royce was a standout gainer after its results. The blue chip FTSE 100 index ended the session down 1 percent at 7,575.93 points, accelerating losses after the Bank of England raised interest rates as expected. A weaker pound failed to lift the FTSE as the currency came under pressure after Governor Mark Carney said that policy needed to "walk not run" and expressed concern over Brexit.

    London Stock Exchange dismisses Frankfurt euro clearing threat

    The London Stock Exchange said on Thursday that more customers were clearing euro-denominated contracts, as it sought to quell concerns that rival Deutsche Boerse (DB1Gn.DE) was beginning to steal significant market share. Euro clearing has become a Brexit battleground as some EU policymakers want it moved from London, where LSE dominates, to the single currency area after Britain leaves the bloc next March, threatening the City's role as a global financial centre. Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) said this week it was shifting a large part of its new euro derivatives clearing from London to Deutsche Boerse in Frankfurt.

    ICE plans futures on euro, Swiss franc "risk-free" benchmarks

    The Intercontinental Exchange has said it will offer futures contracts based on the euro zone's new "risk free" interest rate benchmark - once the market agrees on one. Central banks are prodding markets to replace Libor and sister benchmarks like Euribor in the euro zone with "risk free" alternatives based on market transactions. Banks were fined billions of dollars for trying to rig the benchmarks, used to price trillions of dollars in financial contracts.
