The London Stock Exchange Group has set out a plan to return £750 million to its shareholders as it posted a rise in first-half profits that was boosted by its acquisition of the data business Refinitiv.
 
The FTSE 100 company completed its $27 billion deal for the financial information business in late January last year in a move that significantly expanded its presence in data services, a potentially lucrative area as more trading becomes electronic.
 
The acquisition has swelled its statutory pre-tax profits, which climbed to £803 million from £463 million a year earlier.
 
UK & European markets closed lower after a key U.S. jobs report showed unexpected strength in the labour market.
 
U.S. stocks
opened lower following a stronger-than-expected July jobs report.
 
Oil prices rose.

Gold prices extended losses to slide more than 1%.
