Christopher Edmonds is an Atlanta, GA based exchange executive who is currently the president of fixed income & data services at Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (ICE). His role encompasses various aspects such as pricing analytics, reference data, indices, mortgage data, desktop solutions, consolidated feeds, connectivity services, and the ICE Bonds execution venues. Additionally, Edmonds is involved in overseeing ICE’s sustainable finance product initiatives, particularly those related to sustainable investing through data and analytics.[1][2]

In addition to his responsibilities at ICE, Edmonds is a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Financial Sector Advisory Council.

Prior to his current role, Edmonds served as chief development officer at ICE, where he was responsible for supervising all of ICE’s clearing house operations and the global risk management team. He also played a role in coordinating the company’s marketing and public relations activities. Before that, he held positions as global head of clearing & risk and senior vice president of financial markets at ICE. In these capacities, he was involved in developing initiatives within ICE’s exchange-listed and over-the-counter financial markets. Edmonds also served as president of ICE Clear Credit, which is ICE’s credit default swap (CDS) clearing house.[3] [4][5]

He is a past president of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity.

Background[edit]

Edmonds was formerly the chief executive officer of International Derivatives Clearing Group, or IDCG. He was appointed to the position in August of 2008. It was announced in January of 2010 that he had "stepped down to pursue other opportunities".

Edmonds had first met Jeffrey Sprecher when he was an OTC broker with ICAP, but when he stepped down from being CEO of ICAP Futures in 2008 and had accepted the job of CEO of IDCG, Sprecher called him and asked him “‘Hey, why didn’t you tell me you were leaving?,’” according to a Waters Technology Story in October of 2024. Edmonds replied, "Well, why didn’t you tell me you’d be interested in my joining ICE?" The next time Edmonds made a career move, Sprecher was his first call.[6]

Before joining IDCG, Edmonds was chief development officer for ICAP Energy, LLC, an ICAP subsidiary. From 2005 to 2008, Edmonds led ICAP Energy’s growth efforts within the energy and commodities space.[7]

He also served as the chief executive officer of ICAP Futures, LLC, where he is credited with increasing the over-the-counter (OTC) cleared products and services in energy and commodities.[8]. Edmonds was also the chief operating officer and lead architect in the design of ICAP Energy’s online platform, True Quote. Edmonds was instrumental in developing strategic partnerships on ICAP Energy’s behalf.

Edmonds was also involved with the launch of NYMEX's ClearPort Clearing, which became a reality in 2002.
