Seen in a financial industry newsletter this morning:

“Futurize”: verb, to take a derivative product and trade it as a future

Said by CFTC Commissioner Scott O'Malia while delivering the keynote at
TabbFORUM's annual Fixed Income event Wednesday in New York


This is not the more common "bring into the future" usage, but a specific
change happening in the financial markets for derivatives, which are being
pushed by current regulation to change from over-the-counter to being
traded on an exchange, like a financial future.
