MSCI Indexes

MSCI Indexes

MSCI Indexes are some of the world’s most widely tracked benchmarks, with about USD 11 trillion linked to them. They also serve as the basis for over 500 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 the increased need for futures and options. MSCI Derivatives help managers facilitate in and outflows of funds, hedge existing equity exposure and enhance portfolio performance.

Eurex’ MSCI Derivatives segment has seen another record quarter in Q2/2017 with over 2.7 million traded contracts. This is a growth of 127% vs the year before and Asian underlyings continue to contribute strongly to this figure.

Now over 100 MSCI Derivatives
With the recent addition of 16 MSCI Futures and 6 MSCI Options, Eurex now offers a truly global offering across Asia’s Emerging Markets (EM) and Developed Markets (DMs) with a focus on entire regions and single countries.

88 MSCI Futures & 19 MSCI Options
New Futures such as the MSCI Taiwan and MSCI Singapore, and Options on MSCI Japan & MSCI China Free provide investors targeted exposure to key Asian markets.

  • MSCI World Index, covering the universe of developed markets as a whole
  • MSCI Europe Index, the leading benchmark for European equity funds
  • MSCI Emerging Markets Index, measuring performance of equities in the global emerging markets

Access to developed and emerging markets

With our regional MSCI Emerging Markets Index derivatives our participants can not only gain access to leading benchmarks for fund managers, but also to single emerging market countries in Asia (like India or Thailand), Eastern Europe (like Poland or Russia), Africa (like South Africa or Egypt) or Latin America (like Mexico or Chile).

In addition to these combined emerging markets indexes there is also the possibility to choose single countries for your investment, e.g. with our futures on the MSCI Russia, MSCI Japan, MSCI Peru or MSCI South Africa Index.

Frontier markets to watch

Also available are the so-called frontier markets including, for example, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Kuwait and Vietnam. The MSCI Frontier Markets Index shows potential to develop into another benchmark over time and we are showing our early commitment to emerging and frontier market derivatives.
