Zug (February 26, 2021) – Qontigo’s index provider STOXX was named Best European Index Provider for ESG ETFs at this year’s ETF Express Awards. STOXX indices have now received awards from ETF Express for the eleventh time.
Voting for the awards was conducted via an online poll of the entire ETF Express readership of over 10,000 subscribers, where participants were asked to make their choice among the shortlisted firms in each category.
“We feel very honored to receive the award ‘Best Index Provider for ESG ETFs’ from ETF Express. Qontigo has long prioritized ESG and sustainability indices and has launched a comprehensive Sustainable Investing Ecosystem. Our indices increase liquidity and lower trading costs to help meet investors’ specific and diverse sustainable investment goals.
“In 2020, we set a new standard with the launch of our STOXX Climate Transition Benchmark, CTB, and STOXX Paris-Aligned Benchmark, PAB. By going above and beyond EU regulatory requirements in these indices’ design, in particular with our requirement that companies must commit to Science Based Targets Initiative, SBTI, to remain in the index, we offer an investment framework robust and innovative enough to answer Net Zero commitments.”Rodolphe Bocquet, Global Head of Sustainable Investing of Qontigo
