Nasdaq's Story

The Nasdaq of today is the result of a carefully orchestrated plan to diversify our business model. Our transformation was driven by our ability to create opportunities in areas adjacent to our core businesses--many of which are non-transaction based and rooted in innovative technology.

A Powerful Model

Building on our capital markets experience, technological expertise, and clear understanding of our client's needs, we've increased and diversified our product and service offerings to fully serve our customers.
