To meet the growing demand of its customers, Eurex, a prominent derivatives exchange and a member of the Deutsche Börse Group, expanded its MSCI derivatives offering with the addition of new futures and options today.

The exchange has launched futures on the MSCI Germany and MSCI Israel. In terms of new options, Eurex expanded the offering with MSCI China and MSCI Saudi Arabia. With the addition of 4 new futures and 2 new options MSCI derivatives, Eurex now has an extensive list that consists of 156 futures and 26 options.

“MSCI is happy to continue to partner with Eurex on the expansion of new European, Middle Eastern and Asian Futures and Options. The continued rise in open interest of MSCI derivatives at Eurex is a clear sign of growing demand in the end-user community,” George Harrington, the Managing Director & Global Head of Fixed Income and Derivatives at MSCI, said.

Partnership with MSCI

Eurex has a long-standing collaboration with MSCI. The exchange developed a partnership with MSCI in 2008 and since then, over 100 million contracts have been traded. Additionally, 2022 started on a positive note as 290,810 MSCI options were traded during the first month of 2022.

“Two additional ESG indices will be covered with futures: MSCI Europe ESG screened and MSCI EMU ESG screened. Those will complete the regional offering, which already includes ESG screened indices for EM, EM Asia, World, EAFE, USA and Japan and reached an open interest of about EUR 900 million. Two new options extend the offering: MSCI China and MSCI Saudi Arabia. The MSCI China options will replace the MSCI China Free options, and the launch of MSCI Saudi Arabia options makes sense as Eurex is already the leading market for Saudi Arabian index derivatives,” the exchange added.

In January 2022, Eurex reported record volumes in Euro Clearing.
