Having a global view doesn't exclude a local reach
Eurex is one of the largest derivatives exchanges worldwide, with several indexes spanning multiple countries and continents. However, local country indexes should not be missing from an investment portfolio. Currently, Eurex offers futures and options on different local and regional indexes.
This includes the SIX Swiss Exchange Indexes, Vienna Stock Exchange Indexes, FTSE 100 Index, OMX Helsinki 25, KOSPI and of course, the German DAX®. Trading with country-specific indexes allows investors to monitor the respective market's overall situation and over-or underweighting specific countries in a global investment portfolio.
