Global Investor names Eurex “Exchange of the Year”

Good news: for the second time in a row, we received the Global Investor Award in the category “Exchange of the Year”. The award measures excellence in the exchange world across asset classes and geographies.

“Eurex has been the most committed of the exchanges in terms of reaching out to the buy-side,” Global Investor stated. As examples, the jury highlighted Eurex’ efforts in client clearing and in our foreign exchange and fixed income segments. “Eurex has continued to lead the European derivatives markets with innovation,” Global Investor explained and mentioned the acquisition of GTX’s ECN business from GAIN Capital Holdings and our pledge to further expand our suite of capital efficient products like total return futures, the STOXX portfolio and our MSCI derivatives. “Just before the introduction of the MiFID II rules, Eurex has also launched a new fixed income service that allows bank’s broker desks and inter-dealer brokers to contact market-makers with request for quote,” Global Investor added.

“It is an honor to receive the ‘Exchange of the Year’ award by Global Investor,” Michael Peters, Member of the Executive Board of Eurex, commented. “We are particularly delighted that our commitment to the buy-side is recognized by this decision. This award will drive us further to continuously improve our products and services to the benefit of our customers.”

In 2017, we became the first recipient of the award for our innovative products which offer asset managers volatility protection and opportunities for yield and for our commitment to convert over-the-counter products into exchange-traded derivatives.
