Enron’s market model was to buy to every seller and sell to every buyer. Wall Street bankers, particularly Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, backed him and he launched ICE in 2000 (giving 80 percent control to the two banks who, in turn, spread out the control among Shell, Total, and British Petroleum. When Enron’s exchange collapsed in 2001 in the Enron scandal, ICE’s business exploded.

    Since then the company has expanded including the following acquisitions:
    International Petroleum Exchange in 2001[5]
    New York Board of Trade in 2006[5]
    Creditex in 2008
    The Clearing Corporation in 2009
    Climate Exchange in 2010
    NYSE Euronext in 2013

    SuperDerivatives in 2014
