KEY TRENDS

Economic recovery to drive volumes

Over the past couple of years, recovery in economic conditions and a positive outlook of the capital markets have heightened investor confidence and improved the financial condition of listed companies. Consequently, the company saw strong growth in the number of new listings on the exchange. Further, enhanced volatility has resulted in greater trading volumes. As economic conditions continue to improve, we expect these trends to be sustained in the near term and drive growth in trading volumes and listings.

Intense competition among exchanges

There is intense competition among exchange operators such as IntercontinentalExchange Group (which owns NYSE), NASDAQ OMX Group, and CME Group for trading volumes, listings, and technology services customers. Newer entrants have tried to offer discounted fees to attract volumes, which could force NASDAQ to follow suit. This could impact revenues and, in turn, margins.
