Release date: 01 Feb 2018 | Eurex Exchange

All time record in Eurex’ Single Stock Dividend Futures

Over 650,000 Single Stock Dividend Futures contracts traded in January 2018

January 2018 marked an all-time high in Single Stock Dividend Futures with a total of more than 650,000 traded contracts, meaning an average daily volume (ADV) of more than 27,000 contracts. This follows on from a record year in 2017 with more than 4.1 million traded contracts and ADVs of 17,000 contracts compared to ADVs of 14,500 in 2016.

The growth drivers can be seen in the fact that a lot of sector or single stock specific stories have driven the need for some participants to hedge with option positions on the index or single stock names: This has also been driving flows from investors taking a directional view on these sectors or these specific single names.

Eurex’s Single Stock Dividend Futures again demonstrated that they meet a wide range of clients’ needs. The largest part of the January volumes was observed in the country segments of Italy (31%) and France (26%). Most of the trades (52%) have been focused in the banks and telecom segments.
