    A well-known UK-Israel business group has bestowed the London Stock Exchange Group (LSE) the group’s award called the “British company of the year.”

    UK Israel Business supports the bilateral trade between the two countries. It recognised the London Stock Exchange at a central London dinner that was attended by over 400 business people.

    Hugo Bieber, the chief executive of UK Israel Business, said that the LSE had been chosen for the award “because of their great professionalism and practical commitment to helping UK investors and shareholders develop productive links with Israeli firms.”

    He added: “The fact that 29 Israeli companies are listed on the LSE, and these have a combined market capitalisation of $16bn (£11.5bn), speaks volumes,”

    The founder of Jerusalem Venture Partners, Erel Margalit, informed the audience that by harnessing innovation, Israel could be able to “transform the entire region.”
