About LSEG Labs

Are you passionate about collaborating around technical data challenges to creatively solve complex problems? Labs are part of the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) a diversified global financial markets infrastructure and data provider, working with our Trading, Post Trade and Data & Analytics teams. From petabytes of tick-by-tick market data to the world’s largest collection of financial documents, our services and content fuel the financial markets allowing investors to make decisions and financial institutions to reduce risk and even fight financial crime.

Labs provides a unique opportunity to work with financial services data in a global company whilst in a team with the culture of a start-up.

We investigate the application of new technology to LSEG products and services. Right now, Labs is working on AI, Big Data and Blockchain – performing graph-based risk analysis, turning text into risk signals, using ML to predict bond prices and creating real-time data simulations.
