From the Nasdaq 2015 Annual Shareholder letter
“Nearly 50 years ago, Nasdaq started a revolution as the first electronic platform to display quotes for securities not listed on national exchanges. And while Nasdaq today is a far cry from its cutting edge beginning—one thing has remained constant; an unquenchable ambition and desire for change. Technology has always been part of our DNA and our purpose. In fact, one of the greatest hallmarks of the capitalist system, and the financial technology (FinTech) sector in general, is a seemingly endless capacity for reinvention and technological rejuvenation.”
