Intercontinental Exchange builds, operates and advances global markets through information, technology and expertise
We started out in 2000 with the idea of transforming the energy markets by creating an electronic marketplace that removed barriers and drove transparency and access.
By staying close to customers, we saw the demand for the efficiency that technology brings and expanded our electronic trading platform into new markets. At the same time we understood that along with liquidity, trust and integrity are central to the effective operation of markets and began investing to build and acquire clearing houses.
As our electronic markets and demand for clearing grew, access to new sources of information became central to our customers and data has increasingly become the lifeblood of markets. We saw this evolution and consistently we advanced our capabilities, building a data business which is complementary to every part of our solution.
Today, we’re a Fortune 500 company that connects the largest community of participants in all major markets at key phases of the investing, trading, hedging and capital raising lifecycle. Our comprehensive markets, clearing houses and data solutions mean that we uniquely deliver more mission critical markets, risk management and data for our customers’ workflow than any other exchange operator in the world.
With a leading-edge approach to developing technology platforms, we have built market infrastructure in all major trading centers, offering customers the ability to manage risk and make informed decisions in the geography of their choice.
By leveraging our core strengths in our markets, clearing, data and technology, we continue to identify new ways to serve our customers and transform global markets.
