The LSE has a strong record of funding growth of Russian mining companies and the return of gold miner Polyus two years after it delisted shows the London bourse remains a “natural destination” for Russian companies, LSE CEO Xavier Rolet said on Wednesday.

“The listing demonstrates London’s ability to deliver substantial equity funding to ambitious businesses from around the world. It also underlines the fact that London remains the natural destination for Russian companies seeking access to international investor capital,” he said in a statement, welcoming Polyus back to the LSE.
