Successful start for EURO STOXX 50 options with month-end expirations

Release date: 02 Aug 2018 | Eurex Exchange, Eurex Clearing

Successful start for EURO STOXX 50 options with month-end expirations

Eurex’ recently launched EURO STOXX 50® options with month-end expirations had a successful start with nearly 40,000 traded contracts. Introduced on 9 July, the 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, we at Eurex took another step in the exchange’s efforts to facilitate the ongoing transition from tailor-made OTC products into an exchange traded and cleared environment that is part of the strategy of Deutsche Börse Group.
