ATLANTA & NEW YORK–July 26, 2016– Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE), a leading operator of global exchanges, clearing houses and data services, recently introduced the expanded ICE Data Services, bringing together proprietary exchange data, valuations, analytics, desktop tools and connectivity solutions from across ICE and the New York Stock Exchange, Interactive Data and SuperDerivatives. This milestone is part of the ongoing integration of Interactive Data, which ICE acquired in December 2015.
ICE formed its ICE Data subsidiary in 2003, recognizing the rising demand for exchange data as markets became increasingly automated. ICE continues to invest in its data services to address evolving customer needs driven by regulatory reform, market fragmentation, passive investing and indexation, along with increased demand for data capacity and security, and independent valuations.
Today, ICE Data Services offers a range of proprietary data, valuations, analytics and tools for global markets across asset classes, including:
- Proprietary data from ICE and NYSE’s 11 global exchanges
- Continuous and end-of-day evaluated pricing for 2.7 million securities, including hard-to-value and thinly-traded securities, complex derivatives, and reference data on over 10 million instruments
- Desktop and trading tools designed to match the workflow requirements of a broad range of customers
- Connectivity solutions that include the low-latency, resilient Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure® (SFTI) network
“By combining our broad range of proprietary data services and analytics, we are able to offer clients a more complete, consolidated view of the markets,” said ICE Chairman & CEO Jeffrey C. Sprecher. “This integrated approach is consistent with our focus on providing neutral, efficient workflow solutions across markets in a dynamic market environment. We will continue to invest and innovate to offer actionable views of global markets to support decision making whether for trading, investment, operations or risk management.”
“The depth of solutions that power ICE Data Services combine industry-leading fixed income evaluations and reference data with data from ICE and NYSE’s global exchanges, as well as technology-driven data tools. We’ll continue to expand to serve the needs of our customers for comprehensive, mission-critical data for the front, middle and back office requirements,” said Lynn Martin, President of ICE Data Services.
