ICE credits rule changes for lift

INTERCONTINENTAL Exchange yesterday credited the swathe of new financial rules for its 18 per cent jump in net income to $143m.

Revenues rose eight per cent to $351m (£225m), in part thanks to its work helping clients “comply with new requirements under financial reform”.

A strong showing for ICE’s energy futures market helped cushion a two per cent fall in over the counter transaction and clearing revenues.
