NYSE acquires the National Stock Exchange
We launched Intercontinental Exchange in 2000, with an electronic trading platform that brought more transparency and accessibility to the OTC energy markets. Soon after, we began evolving in response to customer demand for efficiency, automation and risk management; we added global futures markets, cleared OTC products, data services and clearing houses – all designed to serve the dynamic needs of market participants around the world.
Today, we’re a Fortune 500 company that operates a global ecosystem of markets and clearing houses, and delivers information and listings services. By combining the best of human ingenuity and technology, we help our customers seamlessly access global markets and information.
At our Core
We’re engineers, strategists and problem-solvers who continually create and improve technology that solves market structure challenges on behalf of our customers. We got our start bringing transparency and risk management to the global derivatives markets and then, through the acquisition of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), started innovating solutions to reduce complexity in the U.S. equity markets while bringing unparalleled services to our global issuers.
By putting the needs of our customers and global market participants first, we are a high-growth company focused on delivering:
