Sustainability is worth it – successful trading with ESG futures

The investment behavior of institutional and private investors is changing. Over the last years, sustainability has become more and more important – and this is reflected in the product range of index providers and derivatives exchanges such as Eurex. Three letters are important in this context: ESG. They stand for three sustainability aspects: 

E stands for environment,

S for social,

G for governance.

This ESG information is becoming increasingly important. It helps when undertaking a comprehensive evaluation or a short- to medium-term prognosis of a company’s success. For this reason, investors are increasingly considering qualitative criteria, alongside the classic quantative investment criteria such as rate of return, risk and liquidity. In short, this means that capital is being invested to ensure that today’s investment needs are met without endangering future generations. With over 100 sustainability indices, Deutsche Börse Group offers a distinct service and product range, including, for example, the index families STOXX® ESG Leaders and STOXX® Low Carbon
