LSE business division to open HQ in Sri Lanka soon


Aug 15, 2016 (LBO) – London Stock Exchange Group’s Business Services division (LSEG BSL) will soon open its new headquarters in the historic Expert City precinct, formerly known as Tripoli Market, in Colombo.

The new Business Services division in Sri Lanka will provide support to the group’s operating entities across the globe, the group said in a statement.

The venture will provide the best and brightest technology talent in the country with the opportunity to be a part of an ever expanding, innovative knowledge hub.

The new LSEG facility will directly employ 400 personnel in high-technology jobs, with an additional 1,200 employed indirectly.

These employees will be tasked with providing technical support services that are central to the Group’s global network.

“Our plans to establish a 26,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Colombo reaffirms our commitment to the technology sector of Sri Lanka,” Murali Subrahmanyan, Head of Business Services Colombo, LSEG said.

“Our new facility at Expert City will house some of the best talent in the industry, and it is important to us that all our facilities reflect these high standards.”

The proposed new 26,000 sq ft premises would complement LSEG BSL’s current incubation hub which is also housed at Expert City.
