ICE Shatters Expectations with a $2 Billion Revenue Record

Exchange (<a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">ICE</a>) has announced a significant uptick in its financial metrics for
the third quarter of 2023. The data and technology powerhouse's net revenues
reached a record $2.0 billion, marking an 11% year-over-year (YoY) increase.

Knight, a move that expanded ICE's mortgage network and fortified its growth
trajectory.</p><p>Intercontinental Exchange
