The company, which operates the Toronto Stock Exchange, says its net income increased 14 per cent to $77.3 million, up from $67.8 million a year earlier due to increased revenues and lower operating expenses.

“While equity trading volumes decreased, we continued to see very strong capital raising activity and an increase in our derivatives trading volumes in Q2/21,” stated chief financial officer David Arnold.
