New Product Launch

In January Eurex broadened its offering of derivatives on ESG indices with futures on Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) indices. These new derivatives contracts use the STOXX Europe 600 SRI Index as well as MSCI’s SRI index suite, covering Europe, USA, World, and Emerging Markets and serve the growing demand for an advanced ESG methodology.

SRI indices provide broad exclusions combined with a best-in-class selection approach. The new SRI products recorded their first trades, and liquidity providers continuously provide on-screen prices.
