* Steady rise in UK equity markets has been helpful to our equities revenues
* We have seen a paucity of primary equity issuance in UK market as a whole and increase in m&a activity has yet to fully benefit our top line
* As a result, total income will be moderately below first half of last year.
* Based on strength of our pipeline, we remain confident in outturn for full year. Source text for Eikon: Further company coverage: (Reporting By Rachel Armstrong)
