I know that this question doesn't make sense because "Brexit" is juridically a fuzzy concept.

But I've heard that Euronext (which is related to financial products of France, Netherland,...) was physically located near London.

Suppose that a "hard" brexit happens. Will be any consequence about the future location of Euronext (even partially).

And if it's the case: Will be consequences on the connectivity of the european market place to the other ones?

(My second question comes because I understood that EURONEXT was in UK for technical reason)

    Where did you hear this? A trivial search of Euronext's Wikipedia page suggests that's not true. – F1Krazy Dec 2 at 17:22

Euronext is registered in Amsterdam and has its corporate headquarters in Paris so there will be no issue at all with any offices it has in London other than possibly shutting them down.

This would include all properties including data centers and I would find it strange that a company of this size would not already be working on the needed moves in case of a hard brexit. However the question would be is there any need to move the datacenter as the company is a European stock exchange and not a Euro one so I would guess that it would not matter.

A much bigger issue that was not asked would be what would happen to all of the English companies that are listed on it and if they would have to be removed which could possibly cause not only those companies major issues but the entire Euronext market as there is now a precedent of entire countries being removed. Because of this I don't think there will be any impact to them.
