1. Risk management will continue to rise in prominence, and futures volumes will reflect that.

2. Have you seen the profitability of this business? Geez.

3. Scale, network, and reputational advantages. Scale and network look intact after NYSE/Deutsche Boerse collapse. MF Global impact on reputation likely temporary.

4. Return of capital to shareholders -- see new dividend policy.

5. Asset light business, great tough-to-replicate properties.
