Video – Nasdaq looks to attract IPOs

May 12, 2009

Nasdaq OMX Group, the transatlantic exchange operator, says it expects to work hard this year to try and lure new companies looking to list publicly even as competition among exchanges continues to rise.

President Magnus Bocker, speaking at the 2009 Reuters Exchanges and Trading Summit in New York on Tuesday, says “the IPO pipeline looks very interesting” especially for financial services firms where investors could see “both new startups but also some spinoffs from traditional banks and financial services companies.”
