Proving itself unusually adept at arousing the ire of exchange executives, The Children’s Investment Fund this week found itself on the wrong side of a tongue-lashing from NYSE Group chief John Thain.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Thain slammed the hedge fund’s opposition to NYSE’s merger with European exchange operation Euronext, in which TCI holds a substantial stake. According to Thain, “TCI, like all hedge funds, is simply touting its own interests” in pushing a merger with Deutsche Börse, in which TCI also holds a big stake.
The man who took the New York Stock Exchange public accuses TCI of downplaying possible regulatory problems with a Deutsche Börse-Euronext marriage, and mocked a proposal to allow Euronext shareholder to vote on both merger options.
