LONDON (Reuters) - The London Stock Exchange <LSE.L> reported a 55 percent fall in equity capital raised in 11 months to end-Feb as a third-quarter share price rally and a pick-up in traded volumes failed to offset last year's slowdown.
Total equity capital raised fell to 14.8 billion pounds for the period, down from 32.4 billion pounds a year earlier, the LSE said in a trading update on Thursday. New listings were down to 107 from 144 last year.
