Bob Greifeld, chief executive at Nasdaq OMX Group, said the exchange group would be interested in acquiring NYSE Euronext's Liffe market if regulators force a sale of the platform. "To the extent that Liffe is available, we would be interested in that, as would be a host of other people," Greifeld said. "In terms of the remedies proposed and assets for sale, those are of little or no interest to us." A source said that NYSE Euronext and Deutsche Boerse are looking into the idea of divesting some of their derivatives operations to gain approval for their proposed merger.
