Interim Management Statement

Tullett Prebon plc (the "Company") is today issuing its Interim Management
Statement in relation to the period from 1 July 2010.

Business Update

Market activity in the period since the half year has been relatively subdued
without any sustained periods of higher volatility, and underlying revenue in
the four months July to October has continued to be unchanged compared with the
same period a year ago.

Revenue in the four months of £292m is 3% lower than reported for the same
period last year (6% lower at constant exchange rates), reflecting the net
effect of the broker defections in North America following the raid by BGC in
the second half of last year. The reduction in revenue also includes the impact
of actions being taken to close six small offices in North America that make
only a limited contribution to operating profit.

Year to date (January to October) revenue of £768m is 6% lower than in the
equivalent period last year (7% lower at constant exchange rates).

The Company has been voted overall interdealer broker of the year by Risk
Magazine in its 2010 annual global interdealer survey, published in September.
Dealers across the global wholesale banking market voted Tullett Prebon first
place in more products than any other broker, with the top ranking in 31
individual product categories. For the second year running, Tullett Prebon was
voted the top broker in currencies, leading the rankings in 10 individual
currency product categories, and also performed strongly in interest rates,
taking 17 first places.

On 15 September the European Commission ("EC") tabled their proposals for
making derivatives markets in Europe safer and more transparent. Proposals
focus on the increased use of central counterparties, on trade reporting to
trade repositories and on increasing the use of electronic means for the
confirmation of trades. The EC is aiming for full adoption of the proposals by
the end of 2012. We support the direction of these proposals and we believe
that we continue to be well positioned to respond to, and to benefit from,
changes in the way in which OTC markets and our customers operate.

The Company's financial position remains strong.
