CME Group Russell 2000
CME Group Russell 2000 futures were launched as an E-mini contract in 2001. The contract was the most successful of the CME Russell contracts in terms of volume and open interest. However, in 2006, amid the InterContinental Exchange's attempt to wrest control of the Chicago Board of Trade from the CME, ICE secured an exclusive contract with Frank Russell & Company, Inc. to list the Russell futures and futures options contracts on ICE.
