The most interesting tidbit from this year’s IDX was a seemingly offhand comment made by ICE CEO Jeff Sprecher at the exchange leaders panel. Regarding open access and clearing interoperability, which European regulators are pushing to maximize customer choice in execution and post-trade services, Sprecher said exchanges will be further incentivized to list each other’s products, with execution eventually becoming a loss leader for exchanges. He said “take the economics out of execution, then make it back elsewhere,” which simply means more fees for data, clearing, connectivity and other add-ons. As a sort of unscientific poll among IDX attendees, I…

Out of Chaos: ICE’s Sprecher Says Exchange Is Set For Growth Interview,Regulation,Tech / HFT,Video

The Intercontinental Exchange Group had a record 2014, but for CEO Jeff Sprecher “boy, it was a chaotic year.” ICE posted revenues of $3.01 billion last year from transaction and clearing fees, as it consolidated operations from the 2013 NYSE Euronext acquisition, navigated changing regulations, handled energy market volatility and eyed its Asian expansion. Sprecher, who spoke with JLN editor-in-chief Jim Kharouf at the FIA Boca conference, said regulation will continue to be a strong influence on the marketplace in 2015. But ICE is not waiting for the US and European rulemaking process to reach its conclusion. The exchange plans…
