The Stock Exchange Veterans charity had the honour of pressing the button on the opening of the London Stock Exchange session this Thursday, August 16.

The LSE invited the charity to take part in the ceremony as it is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, having started life as an offshoot from a stock exchange football team.

With the closure of the Stock Exchange floor, it became more difficult to continue the football team and the last fixture was played against Winchmore Hill in 1995.

However, the Vets Golf Society is still well supported and the Stock Exchange Vets annual dinner is a highlight of the City calendar.

Nick Bealer, the current chair of the Stock Exchange Vets said taking part in the LSE ceremony is “a big honour and a privilege.”

In a speech delivered at the event, Bealer – known as the ‘Vicar’ in the City – told attendees: “The disappointment of the loss of our lovely cosy Club, the Floor of the Exchange, has been balanced out by the pride we have in how well the London Stock Exchange has driven us forward on the world’s trading stage.”

The charity chairman added: “As we escape, by hook or by crook, the clutches of Europe the Exchange will continue to thrive, innovate and move forward.

“The key to our success as Vets and as an Exchange is quite simple. It’s something people will notice and which will set us apart. Let Our Word Be Our Bond.”
