I am thrilled that NYSE Euronext was given an award last night by Inside Market Data (IMD) for Best Contract.  This contract was developed by NYSE Euronext and Russell Indexes to guide, measure and deliver on our relationship. Discussions with Russell Indexes started with a hosting solution to empower Russell to consolidate and control their real time index development process. The relationship quickly expanded to distribution of data content.

Russell Indexes now has a world-leading hosted calculation platform with dedicated distribution and support from NYSE Technologies that gives them the control they wanted over their real time products. This relationship is a win-win and continues to strengthen as we work together to find new opportunities for the customers we serve.
