UK Sparks: Reassure Group Confirms Intention To Float

Reassure Group, the closed life insurance consolidator owned by reinsurer Swiss Re, has confirmed that it intends to list on the London Stock Exchange.

Early Look: Thursday, June 13, 2019

U.S. futures point to a bounce after slipping for a second straight session on Wednesday, dragged down by weaker energy and financial stocks (on lower oil and rising interest cut expectations), but look to steady ahead of jobless claims and import data later this morning.
