Reto Francioni, CEO of Deutsche Boerse, said his exchange's proposed merger with NYSE Euronext likely will spark an acceleration in consolidation among bourses. Francioni also said that the Deutsche Boerse-NYSE Euronext merger could eventually include other exchanges. "The main point of the targeted fusion with NYSE Euronext is that each spot market remains independent. One could also include Spain or Switzerland," Francioni said.
