Strategy indices

STOXX Strategy indices provide sophisticated and transparent solutions to target risk and returns from equity markets

Our strategy indices push the envelope in innovation; all while adhering to rules-based and transparent methodologies. To help our clients meet their multiple investment objectives, we combine leading optimization and risk analytics capabilities with innovative index construction.

Strategy index categories

Currency Hedged

STOXX offers monthly and daily currency hedged indices, typically available in the following versions: AUD, CHF, EUR, GBP, JPY and USD.


Decrement indices replicate the performance of their underlying index, assuming a constant deduction per annum. The performance deduction accrues constantly on a daily basis.


Leverage indices are linked to the changes in the underlying index, applying a leverage factor to movements in the underlying index.

Low Risk Weighted

These indices select and weight companies from their respective parent indices with a weighting factor based on the inverse of the 12-month volatility with a component capping.

Minimum Variance

Minimum Variance indices are derived from parent indices with a weighting that applies a minimum variance optimization.

Risk Control

Risk Control indices apply a target volatility concept.


Select indices measure the performance of stocks with low volatility and high dividend yield.

Select Diversification

Select Diversification indices measure the performance of stocks with low correlation, low volatility and high dividend yield.

Sharpe Ratio

These indices include stocks from the respective parent indices that have the highest Sharpe ratios while excluding those with low dividend yields and low liquidity.


Short indices are linked inversely to the changes in the underlying index, applying a negative leverage factor to movements in the underlying index.


Volatility indices, including the EURO STOXX 50 Volatility Index (VSTOXX), measure implied volatility derived from option values.
