CEO Extra: Fast Money Exclusive w/ Nasdaq OMX Group CEO

Nasdaq OMX Group kicked off exchange earnings with a beat. The market on Wednesday posted record results, with EPS beating analyst estimates by four cents. Nadsaq OMX CEO Robert Greifeld spoke exclusively with Fast Money on the news.

Greifeld cited derivatives as one of the biggest growth drivers last quarter. "For the first time our derivatives revenue was actually higher than our cash equities revenue," said Greifeld.

And the options market isn't the only area of growth, as Nasdaq OMX continues to expand alongside the rapidly evolving trading landscape.

Greifeld told Fast Money that Nasdaq OMX's recent acquisition of risk management company FTEN "allows us to make sure that all the orders going into the market have gone through some pre-trade risk management. That's going to be a growing opportunity, not just here in the U.S. but on a global basis."

As for the red-hot IPO market, Greifeld noted: "...I do have to caution the IPO market can be notoriously fickle. It can be quite aggressive, then it can shut down completely. But "what's great is we're seeing venture-backed IPOs have the ability to come back to market...to me that's particularly important because we recognize 92% of employment growth happens after a venture-backed company comes public."
