In 2000, Jeffrey C. Sprecher discovered a gap in the financial services industry. And with the backing of Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, Société Générale, Total, BP, Shell, and Goldman Sachs, Sprecher founded Intercontinental Exchange Inc. (ICE).

The name was also inspired by the need to serve global markets, which were lacking a clear infrastructure in their way of trading. The company has set its base in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

The American company has taken up the obligation of helping companies with risk management, access to information and raising capital. The demand for efficiency grows by the day and so is the need for technology which will penetrate new markets.

The company has built an infrastructure that serves its customers in more than 70 countries. Its mission is simple; to control technology and information. Nonetheless, over the years, it has not only become a regional but also a global exchange. Its listing is in the NYSE market.
