Dear ASX Shareholder
On 18 August 2016, ASX Limited (ASX) announced a strong full-year
result for the 12 months to 30 June 2016 (FY16). There was growth in all
key business areas, supported by higher activity levels and continued
business initiatives that give customers greater choice and control.
Market activity was driven by a rise in secondary capital raisings,
particularly within the financial sector, and heightened volatility in
interest rate markets, culminating with the surprise of Brexit. The
average value traded on ASX's equity market rose almost 10% to $4.2
billion per day, futures and options turnover grew more than 8% across
the period, and there were 124 new listings, the most in five years.
