History

STOXX Ltd. is an established and leading global provider of innovative index concepts with a European heritage. The launch of the first STOXX® indices in 1998, including the EURO STOXX 50® Index, marked the beginning of a unique success story based on the company’s neutrality and independence.

 

Since then, STOXX has been at the forefront of market developments and has continuously expanded its portfolio of innovative indices. STOXX now operates globally across all asset classes.

 

STOXX indices are licensed to more than 500 companies globally which include the world’s largest financial products issuers, capital owners and asset managers. STOXX indices are used not only as underlyings for financial products, such as ETFs, futures and options and structured products but also for risk and performance measurement.

 

In addition, STOXX Ltd. is the marketing agent for DAX® indices. For you this means one sales team for two index brands and one single point of contact.
