Zurich/Singapore (April 30, 2018) – STOXX Ltd., the operator of Deutsche Boerse Group’s index business and a global provider of innovative and tradable index concepts, has been recognized as 2018’s “Best Smart Beta Index Provider, Asia-Pacific” by Structured Retail Products (SRP). This is the first time STOXX Ltd. has received this award. The awards ceremony was held in Singapore.
“This award is a great honor for us, because it marks our first-ever award in Asia. It reflects our dedication to our clients and the innovative contribution we make to their businesses. Our smart-beta expertise in factor and thematic strategies allows us to address rising sophistication among Asian investors looking to diversify beyond traditional country-exposure indices. A key pillar of our Asian commitment is cooperating with strong partners such as Yuanta and MUTB,” said Matteo Andreetto, chief executive officer, STOXX Ltd.
The Asia-Pacific Structured Products & Derivatives Awards 2018 are based on a survey of Asian structured products distributors, which SRP conducted between February and March 2018. For the Service Provider awards, winners were then chosen from a shortlist by a jury consisting of members of both the buy and sell side. Key criteria for the Best Smart Beta Index Provider award include product innovation, performance, customer satisfaction, and price competitiveness.

About STOXX Ltd.
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 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. 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. Under the Omnient brand, STOXX offers custom indices from its existing index universe.
STOXX indices are licensed to more than 600 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 calculates, disseminates and markets the DAX indices. www.stoxx.com
