Introduction of Index Total Return Futures: EURO STOXX 50® Index Total Return Futures (TESX)

Listed solution for implied equity repo trading via EURO STOXX 50® Index Total Return Futures. The Management Board of Eurex Deutschland and the Executive Board of Eurex Zürich AG decided effective 2 December 2016 to introduce Total Return Futures on the EURO STOXX 50® Index (TESX).

The new futures complement the Eurex suite of equity index derivatives and support the market in complying with new financial market legislation. Under the Basel III capital standards banks already face increased capital requirements when entering Over-the-Counter (OTC) transactions. From next year on, there will be additional standards.

The new requirement to set aside more capital for OTC derivatives transactions already applies in the US and Japan. It is likely to further change the structure of derivatives markets by supporting the trend to exchange traded derivatives that regulators are aiming for. Eurex Total Return Futures will offer returns analogous to equity index total return swaps; thus representing a functional replacement for these OTC instruments.
