ZUG (December 12, 2018) - 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 “Most Innovative Index Provider Global” from Capital Finance International (CFI). The decision was based on a panel of judges who scrutinized index providers worldwide and selected STOXX as the winner.
“We feel much honored to be named ‘most innovative index provider global’, because it underscores two of our most important attributes: we have a global reach, and we have been leading the way in innovative index concepts since 1998. For instance, our suite of thematic indices covers megatrends that will shape the world we live in, including the STOXX AI Global Artificial Intelligence Index, which selects its constituents based on an AI algorithm. And we have recently launched the STOXX Europe 600 ESG-X index, which applies an ESG exclusion screen based on responsible policy of leading asset owners to one of our most widely used benchmark indices,” said Roberto Lazzarotto, STOXX Global Head of Sales.

About STOXX Limited
STOXX Ltd. is a global index provider, currently calculating a global, comprehensive index family of over 10,000 strictly rules-based and transparent indices. Best known for the leading European equity indices EURO STOXX 50, STOXX Europe 50 and STOXX Europe 600, STOXX Ltd. maintains and calculates the STOXX Global index family which consists of total market, broad and blue-chip indices for the regions Americas, Europe, Asia/Pacific and sub-regions Latin America and BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) as well as global markets.
To provide market participants with optimal transparency, STOXX indices are classified into three 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. The “iSTOXX” brand typically comprises less standardized index concepts that are not integrated in the STOXX Global index family, but are nevertheless strictly rules-based. While indices that are branded “STOXX” and “iSTOXX” are developed by STOXX for a broad range of market participants, the “STOXX Customized” brand covers indices that are specifically developed for clients and do not carry the STOXX brand in the index name.
STOXX indices are licensed to more than 500 companies around the world as underlyings for Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), futures and options, structured products and passively managed investment funds. Three of the top ETFs in Europe and approximately 25% of all assets under management are based on STOXX indices. STOXX Ltd. holds Europe's number one and the world's number two position in the derivatives segment.
STOXX is part of Deutsche Boerse Group, and also markets the DAX indices. www.stoxx.com
