NEW YORK, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE), a leading operator of global markets and clearing houses, announced today it will introduce two new Russell Index futures contracts. The contracts will be based on the Russell 2000® Growth and Russell 2000® Value Indexes and will begin trading on April 22, 2013, subject to regulatory review.

"These contracts provide additional tools for institutional customers, including equitizing cash balances, hedging style exposures and implementing overlay strategies," said Patrick Fay, director of listed derivatives at Russell Indexes.  "We are extremely pleased that the ICE is expanding its offering of Russell Index-based futures contracts."

"The Growth and Value style indexes offer an expanded range of futures products tied to the Russell 2000®, the widely recognized U.S. small cap equity benchmark," said ICE SVP and Chief Strategic Officer David Goone.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.
