STOXX Limited, the market-moving provider of innovative, tradable and global index concepts, today announced that it has been named “The Most Innovative ETF Index Provider Europe 2014”. This is the sixth consecutive year that STOXX has received this award, which was presented at the 11th Annual ETF Global Awards Dinner and Workshop hosted by Exchangetradedfunds.com in New York on Apr. 30. Award winners were determined by votes cast in the industry and statistical rankings conducted by well-known ETF analysts, making the results an accurate representation of the views of the industry.

“We are honored to win this accolade for the sixth time in a row by an established and well-respected institution such as exchangetradedfunds.com,” said Hartmut Graf, chief executive officer, STOXX Limited. “Our most recent innovative index launches include the STOXX Sharpe Ratio index family and the STOXX ASEAN Select Dividend 30 Index, which is an addition to our ASEAN Select Dividend index family.”

The STOXX Sharpe Ratio indices include stocks from respective benchmarks that have the highest Sharpe ratios, while excluding those with low dividend yields and low liquidity. The STOXX ASEAN Select Dividend 30 Index allows market participants to take advantage of investing in ASEAN companies with high dividend payouts.

As of Mar. 31, 2015, 269 ETFs globally with assets under management of 110 billion US dollars were based on STOXX, DAX and SMI indices. STOXX is the marketing agent for the indices of Deutsche Boerse AG and SIX AG since July 2010.

Note to Editors:
About STOXX Limited

STOXX Ltd. is a global index provider, currently calculating a global, comprehensive index family of over 7,000 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 30% 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. STOXX Ltd. is part of Deutsche Boerse AG and SIX. www.stoxx.com STOXX and its owners and licensors do not make any warranties or representations, express or implied, with respect to the timeliness, sequence, accuracy, completeness, currentness, merchantability, quality or fitness for any particular purpose of its index data and exclude any liability in connection therewith.
