First up on our list is IntercontinentalExchange (ICE - Get Report), a firm that operates four regulated futures and OTC exchanges located in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. Times have been changing for financial exchange operators, and ICE is no exception. The firm's status as a relative newcomer to the field means that ICE is less entrenched and more flexible with the products that it carries on its exchanges. That flexibility has helped IntercontinentalExchange build an attractive niche in the energy derivatives business, a market that could grow quickly in the next several years.
