Preview

Although the London Stock Exchange had begun to review its rules and regulations from September 1916 onwards, there was very little planning to meet the problems and competition likely to be faced in the post‐First World War world. Despite all the changes inside and outside the Stock Exchange that had taken place since August 1914, there was only a limited recognition that these had more than temporary consequences. This chapter discusses the resultant challenges and opportunities in the period between the two wars. There are three sections, which look at the legacy of war, the organization of the Stock Exchange, and membership. The next chapter looks at the changing market place over the same period.
