STOXX Ltd., the operator of Deutsche Boerse Group’s index business, and a global provider of innovative and tradable index concepts, today announced that it has won the Americas Structured Products & Derivatives Award 2016 created by Structured Retail Products (SRP), under the category Best Index Provider for the first time. The award was presented at a ceremony on Jun. 16, 2016 in Boston.
“This award signifies a great achievement for our indices as both customers and independent judges decided on the winner,” said Matteo Andreetto, chief executive officer, STOXX Limited. “This award does not only reflect our position as the leading provider of structured products underlyings globally, but also our commitment to cater to the needs of our clients in different core markets such as the US. The recently launched extension of the STOXX Select and STOXX Diversification Select index families demonstrates that STOXX continues to strengthen its position as a provider of structured product optimized indices.”
The STOXX Select and STOXX Diversification Select Indices are derived from STOXX benchmarks, measure the performance of companies with low volatility, high dividend yield, and – in case of the STOXX Diversification Select Indices – low correlations. The extension of the index families combines investment themes such as Low Carbon and ESG with those screens, thus creating hybrid index concepts. The STOXX Select and STOXX Diversification Select index families are specifically designed as liquid underlyings for financial products such as exchange traded-funds and structured products. The combination of the screens in the index methodology sets an attractive pricing framework especially for the latter.
The number of structured products based on STOXX indices rose to 93,767 in 2015, up 46.7% from 63,870 in 2014. The number of structured products based on STOXX and DAX Indices rose 49.8% to 616,638 in 2015, from 411,511 in 2014. STOXX is part of Deutsche Börse Group, and is the marketing agent of the DAX Indices since 2010.

About STOXX Limited
STOXX Ltd. is a global index provider, currently calculating a global, comprehensive index family of over 7,500 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 markets the DAX indices. www.stoxx.com
