London Stock Exchange

The London Stock Exchange is the most important exchange in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

It lists around 2,500 companies from 68 different countries, making it the most international of all exchanges. The LSE is split into two main sections; the Main Market and the Alternative Investment Market (AIM).

The Main Market is solely for established high-performance companies and has strict listing requirements. Over 1,300 of the LSE's company listings trade on the Main Market with a total market cap of nearly £4 trillion.

The Alternative Investment Market on the other hand trades in small-caps, or new enterprises with high growth potential. Nearly 1,100 companies are listed on the AIM, with a total market cap of over £63 billion.

Other smaller sections include the Professional Securities Market (PSM) and Specialist Fund Market (SFM) account for around 60 companies, with a total market cap of about £6.5 billion.
