London Stock Exchange CEO Xavier Rolet has made numerous changes since taking the reins. He has reduced the LSE staff, cut fees, acquired a technology firm to replace the company's share-trading platform and reached an agreement to take over a rival, Turquoise. The aim is to curb deterioration of the LSE's market share in stock trading, but Rolet is also set on developing the exchange's other businesses, including derivatives and clearing.
