By staying close to customers, we saw the demand for the efficiency that technology brings and expanded their electronic trading platform into new markets. At the same time they 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 their electronic markets and demand for clearing grew, access to new sources of information became central to their customers and data has increasingly become the lifeblood of markets. They saw this evolution and consistently they advanced their capabilities, building a data business which is complementary to every part of their solution.
