( LIFFE)
LIFFE was originally set up as a financial futures and options exchange, and for ten years offered contracts on interest rates denominated in most of the world's major currencies. In 1992 LIFFE merged with the London Traded Options Market ( LTOM), adding equity options to its product range. In 1996, it merged with the London Commodity Exchange ( LCE), and, as a result, a range of soft and agricultural commodity contracts was added to its financial portfolio. In January 2002 LIFFE became part of the Euronext Group. LIFFE
