Pick up a penguin or two at the New York Stock Exchange

THEY say never work with children or animals, but there were some unexpected feathered friends on hand for the bell-ringing when Seaworld floated on the New York Stock Exchange at the end of last week.

Stockbrokers across the pond were treated to the arrival of penguins from the marine company’s menagerie for the day.

The animal gatherings over at the London Stock Exchange have been less exciting however – the last time there was an animal inside the LSE was when Peppa Pig opened the market to mark the listing of Entertainment One.

The Capitalist hears she was “very well behaved and a pleasure to do business with”.
