Award winners were chosen based on votes cast by over 500 members of Europe’s structured products community.
“Since the votes for the 2014 European Structured Products Awards were solely cast by members of the structured products industry, it is a great honor for STOXX to be recognized as Most Innovative Index Provider in Europe,” said Hartmut Graf, chief executive officer, STOXX Limited. “Recently launched index innovations include the STOXX GC Pooling Indices which provide a representation of secured euro funding transactions taking place on the Eurex Repo GC Pooling Market and can thus be seen as transparent, rules-based alternatives to unsecured interbank benchmarks such as LIBOR and EURIBOR/EONIA; as well as the STOXX Global 3D Printing Indices which represents companies that generate revenues directly from this growing sector, and finally the STOXX Strong Quality Indices which measure the performance of highly profitable companies that sell at attractive valuations when compared to their peers.”
In the course of 2013 344,300 structured products were launched on, and 267 ETFs linked to the STOXX, DAX and SMI indices. As of July 2010, STOXX is the marketing agent for the indices of Deutsche Boerse AG and SIX.

About STOXX Limited
STOXX Ltd. is a global index provider, currently calculating a global, comprehensive index family of over 6,000 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, and Pacific, the 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 in three different categories. The 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."
The STOXX indices are licensed to over 400 companies around the world as underlyings for Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Futures & Options, Structured Products and passively-managed investment funds. Three of the top Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in Europe and 30 percent of all assets under management are based on STOXX indices. STOXX Ltd. holds Europe's number one and the world's number three position in the derivatives segment.
In addition, STOXX Ltd. is the marketing agent for the indices of Deutsche Boerse AG and SIX, amongst them the DAX and the SMI indices.
