Is the London shipping community tiring of their monogamous relationship with the Baltic Exchange? Not according to chief executive Mark Jackson.

When Baltic shareholders voted to accept a takeover offer from the Singapore Exchange in late 2016, it brought an end to 272 years of independence for the mutually owned exchange.

Nearly seven years later, it seems that some are dissatisfied with the relationship, like the protagonists in the 1950s film The Seven Year Itch.
