Deutsche Börse chairman snipes at LSE (8 Feb 05)
Rolf Breuer, chairman of Deutsche Börse, on Monday belittled the London Stock Exchange, even though he is leading a controversial £1.3bn proposed bid for the institution. In remarks to students at the London School of Economics, Mr Breuer said the London Stock Exchange was weaker than its Frankfurt- and Paris-based counterparts, Deutsche Börse and Euronext, which are rivals in the planned bidding contest.
