Welcome to the new Nasdaq. Where capital market logistics are solved by people, products and services that are as ambitious as you are. In 1971, the microprocessor was born. Nasdaq wasted no time capitalizing on the new technology by bringing all-electronic trading to the market. Later in the decade, this provided the likes of Apple and Microsoft with the means to raise capital that was previously unavailable to them. Sixteen years later on the other side of the Atlantic, OM became the world’s first publicly traded and listed exchange company. In 2007, Nasdaq merged with OMX with a vision to be a single company with a single mission: Deliver the kind of resources that would solve the logistics of the global capital markets. That vision has served us well. So well, in fact, that Nasdaq transformed itself from a U.S.-based equities exchange to a diversified technology provider for thousands of global firms. Today, we’re the leading technology and information services provider to the capital markets. And our Global Trading and Market Service business have become a significant part of our client offerings. All this can be traced to Nasdaq’s focus on synchronizing and optimizing market movement – an essential principle in the growth of business economies. No one else provides customers with such a high level of infrastructure, tools and strategic insight. Customers have taken advantage of the fact that we’re the single largest liquidity pool for U.S. equities (in volume traded). We’re also acclaimed for our top-rated data offerings. And, of course, for the Nasdaq 100 — home to many of the world’s most heralded securities.
