The global home of MSCI derivatives

MSCI Indexes

MSCI indexes are some of the world’s most widely tracked benchmarks and linked to more than USD 16.3 trillion in AUM. The indexes also serve as the basis for over 1,300 Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). The massive amount of capital benchmarked against MSCI indexes and the improved tradability of index-based products via ETFs has led to an increased need for futures and options. MSCI derivatives help managers facilitate in and outflows of funds, hedge existing equity exposure and enhance portfolio performance.

Over 170 MSCI derivatives

Eurex is the only exchange offering a comprehensive suite of products consisting of futures and options on regional and country indexes: currently, 152 MSCI futures and 24 MSCI options are available covering Emerging Markets (EM) and Developed Markets (DMs) in different index types (NTR, GTR and price indexes) and different currencies (EUR, USD, GBP and JPY).
