ZUG (December 12, 2018) – STOXX Ltd., the operator of Deutsche Boerse Group’s index business and a global provider of innovative and tradable index concepts, has won the award “Most Innovative Index Provider Global” from Capital Finance International (CFI). The decision was based on a panel of judges who scrutinized index providers worldwide and selected STOXX as the winner.
“We feel much honored to be named ‘most innovative index provider global’, because it underscores two of our most important attributes: we have a global reach, and we have been leading the way in innovative index concepts since 1998. For instance, our suite of thematic indices covers megatrends that will shape the world we live in, including the STOXX AI Global Artificial Intelligence Index, which selects its constituents based on an AI algorithm. And we have recently launched the STOXX Europe 600 ESG-X index, which applies an ESG exclusion screen based on responsible policy of leading asset owners to one of our most widely used benchmark indices,” said Roberto Lazzarotto, STOXX Global Head of Sales.
