LSEG will initially employ 200 people across a range of roles in the space which can host 300 employees.
“The selection process started in the summer of 2017 and the decision to rent space in Campus 6 was taken at the end of last year, ” CBRE representatives told BR.
The search started in the summer of 2017 and a selection process was organized in which several properties from various submarkets of the city were taken into account.
