By Lynn Martin, President & COO of ICE Data Services
As we launch our integrated ICE Data Services, which is the combination of Intercontinental Exchange, Interactive Data and SuperDerivatives, I want to take a few minutes to share our vision for the expanded business with you. We’ve closely tracked our customers’ changing needs in response to the dynamic financial and commodity markets landscape, and ICE Data Services is our response to the recognition that a holistic, end-to-end data solution was needed.
The unique components of our integrated ICE Data Services include:
New data is created every day on the ICE and NYSE markets and is used to make trading and risk management decisions throughout the lifecycle of a transaction, whether the transaction spans microseconds or comprises a long-term hedging or investing strategy. As the operator of 11 global exchanges across ICE and NYSE, we’re able to offer transparent insight into the data created on these markets in a range of formats to support informed trading and business decisions and efficiently manage risk.
Pricing & Analytics
The addition of SuperDerivatives and Interactive Data to ICE’s data portfolio was driven by the recognition that the demand for a growing range of data was increasing. SuperDerivatives is known for providing independent valuations for FX and commodity markets, and Interactive Data is known for its pricing, reference data and evaluations of fixed income markets. All of this is designed to help investment and risk management, meeting regulatory requirements and daily operational requirements. As a result of the new integrated data services, we’re able to offer market participants a wide range of evaluations, pricing, analytics and reference data across fixed income, equities, FX and commodity derivatives. Additionally, participants have access to a consolidated feed that aggregates content from 450+ global sources and indexing services based on their evolving needs.
Desktops & Tools
In 2000, energy traders were looking for more transparent access to their markets. ICE was founded as a result of this need, and we introduced the first version of the ICE trading screen, which is today one of the most widely distributed commodity desktops globally. Since then, we’ve expanded to serve a broad range of market participants with desktops and applications designed for everything from commodities and wealth management to instant messaging and pricing.
This set of services provides the backbone for bringing together markets with the participants who transact in them every day. By combining the connectivity services of ICE and Interactive Data, ICE Data Services offers the most sophisticated, secure and redundant infrastructure available today through its Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) network. Not only does it enable cyber protections while offering connectivity to 150 trading venues and more than 600 market data and news sources globally, it also offers the choice of many connectivity solutions designed for resiliency and low latency.
