Eurex and Korea Exchange deepen cooperation with new Index Futures

The signing event between Eurex and the Korean Exchange (KRX) took place on 20 April 2016 in KRX’s Seoul Office. The cooperation features the listing of Mini KOSPI 200 Index Futures during Eurex trading hours and in addition, EURO STOXX 50® Futures will be traded and cleared in Korean Won on KRX during Korean trading hours.

Jeffrey Tessler, member of Deutsche Börse’s executive board, said:

“This strategic cooperation between KRX and Eurex is very beneficial for both Eurex and KRX customers. With the introduction of Mini Kospi 200 Futures, investors will be able to trade and hedge another Korean product for 24 hours a day.”

Kyungsoo Choi, Chairman and CEO of Korea Exchange, replied:

"KRX will list EURO STOXX 50® Futures as its first derivative product based on a foreign equity index. By listing the contract, KRX will establish the foundation to be the Asian derivatives hub."

The new cooperation further strengthens the partnership between Eurex and KRX that was already established in August 2010 with the Eurex/KRX Link, giving Eurex Exchange Participants direct access to KOSPI 200 Options, one of the most heavily traded options contracts in the world, after Korean trading hours.
