The outcome of the STOXX Global ESG Leaders’ annual review is out. Qontigo’s broadest benchmark tracking the highest ESG-scoring companies now comprises 425 constituents: 280 from Europe, 79 from North America and 66 from Asia/Pacific.
The STOXX Global 1800 index dropped 4.1% in dollars last month, taking its retreat in 2022 to 17.9%. Investors are bracing for even tighter monetary policy as central banks fight higher-for-longer inflation.
Qontigo has announced the new composition of the STOXX Europe 600 Index. Effective as of the opening of European markets on September 19, 2022, the following stocks will be added to and deleted from the index and its respective size and sector indices.
Qontigo today announced the results of the regular annual review of the STOXX Blue-Chip Indices, among them the STOXX Europe 50, EURO STOXX 50 and STOXX Nordic 30 indices, as well as the results of the second semi-annual review of the STOXX Eastern Europe 50 Index. All changes will be effective with the opening of European markets on September 19, 2022.
Qontigo has licensed the DAX® Index and the EURO STOXX 50® Index to Japan’s largest ETF issuer, Nomura Asset Management. Both indices come in their currency-hedged version and serve as underlying benchmarks for new ETFs, listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange on September 2. It is the first DAX ETF listing in the Japanese market.
In modifying how DAX composition changes are fixed and publicized every quarter, Qontigo is providing index trackers more visibility and a more stable base upon which to trade the changes and replicate the index.
Five STOXX global thematic indices from Qontigo, a global provider of index, analytics and risk solutions, have been selected for the iShares Future Tech Innovators ETF (ITEK). The ETF, launched by BlackRock Australia, is composed of six underlying ETFs that invest in disruptive, technology-themed companies driving innovation and providing solutions to global challenges.
Investors can access three different German benchmarks that follow an ESG strategy designed to meet specific needs and responsible objectives, and that have the same rules and transparency characteristics as the blue-chip DAX index.
