Borsa Italiana joins the consolidation game

European exchanges

Borsa Italiana has finally decided to join the game of market infrastructure consolidation in Europe.

On July 17 the Italian stock exchange received approval from the majority of Monte Titoli's shareholders to acquire the Italian central securities depository - Italy's custody, clearing and settlement house.
