Last Thursday the NYSE Liffe U.S. team was in London to accept Risk Magazine’s ‘Exchange of the Year’ award at a dinner with many of our colleagues, partners and peers in the industry. For us, 2011 has been a truly incredible year full of challenges, opportunities and successes for NYSE Liffe U.S. itself and the industry at large.
If the debut of our interest-rate products and the long-awaited launch of NYPC weren’t enough, we also completed the migration of the MSCI EM and EAFE contracts from the CME (with record trading!), our new BIC trading mechanism, an efficient (and free) block trading program, and of course record trading in our Eurodollar contracts that helped drive our open interest over 1 million in December! Whew! Sometimes you don’t realize how much you’ve done until you have an opportunity like this award to look back. I really have to say that I’m just so proud to be a part of this team and work alongside the dedicated professionals we have across the NYSE Euronext.
Throughout all of this we’ve worked hard to stay close to our customers and continue to find more (and better) ways to support their needs and help facilitate their trading strategies. We thank them for their continued support, constructive feedback and willingness to give us a chance to follow through on our promises. We are truly working to improve the U.S. futures market and 2012 promises to be just as eventful for us all.
