During the late 1990s, demutualisation took place in most of the global stock exchanges and the erstwhile mutual ownership structure was changed to publicly-owned shareholding ownership. At the same time, with rapid advancements in technology, automated trading gradually took the centre stage and various mergers and acquisitions took place to improve business efficiency for efficient clearing and trading settlements and reduce operating costs. The consolidation in stock exchanges created an integrated financial market, with worldwide operating facilities and removed the barriers of time and space.

The case, while providing an overview of the global consolidation in stock exchanges, discusses the potential benefits and barriers to the consolidation.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To understand the business dynamics of stock exchange
  • To discuss the importance of consolidation of stock exchanges.
