The NYSE is owned by Intercontinental Exchange, an American holding company that it also lists (NYSEICE). Previously, it was part of NYSE Euronext (NYX), which was formed by the NYSE's 2007 merger with Euronext. NYSE and Euronext now operate as divisions of Intercontinental Exchange.

The NYSE has been the subject of several lawsuits regarding fraud or breach of duty and in 2004 was sued by its former CEO for breach of contract and defamation.
