CME Group Reports Fourth-Quarter 2017 Financial Results

“Our primary goals in 2017 were to expand our global customer base, continue to innovate across our diverse product set and focus on operational efficiency,” said CME Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Terry Duffy. “In a year of historically low volatility, we set annual volume records in three of our six asset classes as well as in total options. We launched successful new products and saw growth in Europe and Asia out-pace that in the U.S. We kept expenses relatively flat for the third straight year, and paid out more than $2 billion in dividends to our shareholders in 2017. Looking ahead, 2018 is starting out strong, with average daily volume up more than 15 percent to date, driven by broad-based strength across our asset classes.” Source / Further information : CME Group Inc. oilandgasOil and Gas News Undiluted !!! “The squeaky wheel gets the oil” Follow us: @OilAndGasPress on Twitter | OilAndGasPress on Facebook ]]>
