Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE) is a leading global operator of regulated exchanges, clearing houses and listings venues, and a provider of data services for commodity and financial markets. ICE operates 12 exchanges and six clearing houses, which offer benchmark products, access to capital markets and a range of related services to support the investing, risk management and capital raising activities of market participants.
ICE launched in 2000 with an electronic trading platform that brought more transparency and accessibility to the OTC energy markets, and soon after added global futures markets, cleared OTC products, data services and clearing houses. This growth was driven by market participants’ increasing need for efficiency, automation and risk management.
In Europe, through the regulated exchanges of ICE Futures Europe and ICE Endex, ICE provides transparent and widely accessible financial and commodity markets. ICE Endex hosts the benchmark Dutch TTF natural gas futures contract next futures on other European gas hubs like NCG, Gaspool and PSV. Its natural gas portfolio also includes gas balancing and gas storage services alongside an extensive range of continental power futures. ICE Futures Europe hosts the benchmark Brent crude oil futures contract and its utilities offering includes natural gas, power, emissions and coal contracts. ICE’s global energy portfolio clears at ICE Clear Europe, providing customers with capital efficiencies through cross-product margin offsets.
