Global Investor names Eurex “Exchange of the Year”

Eurex won the Global Investor Award 2017 in the category “Exchange of the Year”. Eurex is the first recipient of this award, which measures excellence in the exchange world across asset classes and geographies.

Global Investor stated: “The derivatives exchange’s innovative new products offer asset managers volatility protection and opportunities for yield.” Moreover, Eurex’ continued commitment to convert over-the-counter products into exchange traded derivatives was highlighted. One example for this are Eurex’ Total Return Futures and the firm’s continued investments in growing the exchange traded FX market. “As derivatives increasingly come back onto the radar for asset managers as way of increasing yield and protecting against market volatility, Eurex’ understanding of the specific requirements of asset managers will enable the exchange to continue to grow participation”, the magazine stated.

Thomas Book, CEO of Eurex and Head of Derivatives Market Trading at Deutsche Börse Group, said: „We are delighted and very proud to have won this award. We will continue to further innovate our products and services in order to best serve our clients.”

The magazine also mentioned Eurex Clearing’s ISA Direct client clearing model: “The firm has also made great strides during the year with its securities lending clearing service, which reduces counterparty risk and improves efficiencies in the market”. Eurex Clearing now offers clearing in OTC and exchange traded derivatives, repo and securities lending to bring the full spectrum of clearing to asset managers.
