An exchange is a regulated market in which companies and governments can raise funds by issuing securities and where the supply of securities meets the demand. Derivatives exchanges allow investors to manage risk. Exchanges play an essential and central role in the world's economy. They epitomize transparency in the price-formation process, informing investors and disseminating vital information for the functioning of financial markets, and in doing so they represent an important source of capital for nascent and established companies alike.
