ZURICH ( September 12, 2018) - STOXX Ltd., STOXX Ltd., the operator of Deutsche Boerse Group’s index business and a global provider of innovative and tradable index concepts, has won the award “Best Index Provider Japan” from The Asset. It was presented at the Asset Triple A Private Banking, Wealth Management, Investment and ETF Awards 2018 in Hong Kong.
“For all of us at STOXX, receiving the prize was an honor. It recognizes our commitment and work in recent years not just in Japan, but also in the broader region. Asia/Pacific is undergoing a strong evolution in asset management, driven by a wealthier middle class, an ageing population, and rising deposits and investment penetration ratios. As investors there become more sophisticated, passive investing is gathering momentum, increasing demand for flagship blue-chip indices and smart-beta benchmarks. At STOXX we’ve embraced this trend with an expanding footprint in the region. Japan has been at the core of that expansion,” said Rick Chau, Head of Asia/Pacific.
The Asset, founded in 1999, is an integrated multi-media company serving the community of leading corporate and financial decision makers in Asia. According to the company’s own information, The Asset awards are Asia's preeminent recognition for those that have excelled in their respective industries. The awards programs are built upon a stringent methodology that is combined with a rigorous approach in selecting the best institutions and individuals operating in Asia.

To provide market participants with optimal transparency, STOXX indices are classified into four categories. Regular “STOXX” indices include all standard, theme and strategy indices that are part of STOXX’s integrated index family and follow a strict rules-based methodology.
