New month-end options support the buy side

New month-end options support the buy side

As of 9 July, Eurex offers EURO STOXX 50® options with month-end expirations. The new product is another part of our buy-side initiative as it meets the needs of insurers and other market participants that offer pension schemes linked to the performance of the EURO STOXX 50® index.

Thus far, these clients turned to the over-the-counter (OTC) market to hedge the resulting exposure. By offering EURO STOXX 50® options with month-end expirations (OESX-MEEx), we take another step in our efforts to facilitate the ongoing transition from tailor-made OTC products into an exchange traded and cleared environment.

Our EURO STOXX 50® product suite enables our clients to hedge and enhance the performance of their equity portfolios on both on-exchange and OTC markets. They are also extensively used in arbitrage strategies, as the products cover an entire market segment in a single contract. We launched our EURO STOXX 50® index options in 2008.
