Deutsche Boerse shareholders approve LSEG merger

Deutsche Boerse received approval for its merger with London Stock Exchange Group, with 60.35% of shareholders having voted for the deal by Tuesday’s deadline. The merger still needs regulator support, with German markets regulator BaFin questioning the planned London headquarters for the merged entity, and Portuguese and Belgian authorities warning the EU’s anti-trust regulator that the merger would hamper smaller countries’ access to financial markets.
