We’ve got options. You’ve got choice.

ETF & ETC Derivatives

The ETF market has grown substantially over the last years. Therefore, Eurex established the broadest choice in ETF derivatives to give investors pinpoint hedging opportunities on the most successful ETFs of providers iShares, Xtrackers and WisdomTree.

The Equity offering consists on underlying European indexes like ETFs on EURO STOXX 50®, DAX®, STOXX® Europe 600 or MSCI Europe but also on iShares ETFs on S&P 500 as well as on FTSE 100.

The fixed income offering encompasses iShares ETFs on USD investment grade and high yield credit indexes alongside an iShares ETF on an emerging market debt index.

The commodities (ETC) offering covers underlyings such as precious metals and energy.
