Bertie Thomson of Brown Advisory presented his investment thesis on London Stock Exchange Group (UK: LSEG) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2023.

Thesis summary:

London Stock Exchange Group is an integrated financial market infrastructure operator that helps customers mitigate risk. The company operates in duopoly and oligopoly markets, with leading positions in data, indices, and post trade, protected by a fortress of economic moats.

LSEG’s acquisition of Refinitiv in 2021 has materially shifted the group’s economic exposure to data and analytics. Bertie believes there is potential for the company to improve the monetization of its data assets, facilitated by a strategic partnership with Microsoft, and to close the growth and margin gap with peers.

The existing equity overhang provides an opportunity for long-term investors, and Bertie sees a five-year IRR of ~20% in a realistic bull case scenario.
