Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) was founded in May 2000 by Jeffrey C. Sprecher, a former energy trader and partner in a venture capital firm. At the time of its founding, the company focused on energy trading and providing market data for energy producers. In August 2001, the company acquired the International Petroleum Exchange (IPE) from London's International Petroleum Exchange, gaining a major electronic commodities trading platform. In August 2005, ICE gained a listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) after an IPO. In 2007, ICE launched its futures, options and securities clearing house, ICE Clear Europe, becoming the first clearing house to offer clearing services in Europe. This followed the launch of ICE Clear Credit in 2006, a credit derivatives clearing platform. In December 2009, ICE acquired NYSE Euronext in a reverse merger, making ICE the largest exchange operator in the world. This included ICE’s acquisition of the NYSE Liffe derivatives business in April 2014. The acquisition strengthened ICE’s derivatives offering and extended its reach into Europe and the Middle East. In 2012, ICE launched its first public data platform, ICE Data Services, giving customers access to a wide range of real-time and historical market data. In 2016, ICE and the NYSE acquired the National Stock Exchange of India. This acquisition enabled ICE to expand into the Indian market and strengthened its position as a global provider of financial services. In 2018, ICE acquired the International Securities Exchange from Deutsche Boerse to add a U.S. options trading platform to its existing portfolio. In December 2019, ICE acquired mortgage technology company and mortgage lender, Ellie Mae. This acquisition further diversified the company’s portfolio.
