Three in one blow: Eurex winner at the FOW Awards 2019

They came one after the other and, in the end, Eurex took home three awards at the FOW Awards in London:

  • Exchange of the Year – Europe
  • Prop Traders' Exchange of the Year
  • Most Innovative New Contract (Eurex’s ESG Futures)

As much as the two other awards are appreciated, its the third award that pleases us the most since it recognizes our leadership in ESG Futures. We were the first exchange to introduce an ESG product suite based on European benchmarks.

Nine months after their launch in February 2019, our Environmental Social Government (ESG) derivatives reached 700 mn EUR in Open Interest and almost 500,000 traded contracts.

And we have already extended our pioneering role in ESG derivatives by adding the first exchange-traded ESG options on a European benchmark to our product range in October. In addition, we will also provide key ESG derivatives on global, regional and local MSCI Indices and Futures on the STOXX® USA 500 ESG-X Index.And since awards always motivate us, you can expect the next steps in our ESG strategy soon.
