    STOXX licenses fully automated Blockchain Index to Coincapital

    ZURICH (August 14, 2018) -  STOXX Ltd., the operator of Deutsche Boerse Group’s index business and a global provider of innovative and tradable index concepts, has licensed the STOXX® Yewno Developed Markets Blockchain Index to Toronto, Canada-based Coin Capital Investment Management Inc. (Coincapital). The index uses artificial intelligence to select its constituents. It is comprised of companies from a wide range of industries that invest heavily in the development of blockchain-related technologies, and are therefore considered to be well-positioned to benefit from their increased adoption. The key criterion used in the selection process is patent filings related to blockchain intellectual property (IP). This makes it possible to identify both blockchain innovators and adopters.

    “In the market today, some companies think adding ‘blockchain’ to their name means they are innovative. This buries real players – the ones filing for patents and investing in blockchain research  – under a shroud of media hype,” said Lewis Bateman, CEO of Coincapital. “After the launch of B.R.AI.N., we’re excited to once again partner with STOXX on the launch of the Blockchain Index, which uses proprietary AI to track and analyze companies actually doing work to move this technology forward.”

    “Blockchain is one of the most disruptive megatrends of our times, and will play a major role in the transition towards a digital, highly technological world. We are excited to team up with award-winning AI company Yewno one more time. Their algorithms, which use machine learning, computational linguistics and knowledge graph techniques, identify the constituents for this index in a fully automated way,” said Matteo Andreetto, CEO of STOXX. 

    The index universe is the STOXX® Developed Markets Total Market Index. The Blockchain Index is price-weighted with a weighting factor proportional to a constituent’s free-float market capitalization and blockchain IP score. For this, Yewno calculates two metrics relevant to a company’s involvement in the field of blockchain: blockchain intellectual property exposure (blockchain patents in relation to all other patents awarded to an individual company), and blockchain contribution (blockchain patents of an individual company in relation to all blockchain patents within the entire index universe).

    About STOXX Limited

    STOXX Ltd. is a global index provider, currently calculating a global, comprehensive index family of over 7,500 strictly rules-based and transparent indices. Best known for the leading European equity indices EURO STOXX 50, STOXX Europe 50 and STOXX Europe 600, STOXX Ltd. maintains and calculates the STOXX Global index family which consists of total market, broad and blue-chip indices for the regions Americas, Europe, Asia/Pacific and sub-regions Latin America and BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) as well as global markets.

    To provide market participants with optimal transparency, STOXX indices are classified into four categories. Regular “STOXX” indices include all standard, theme and strategy indices that are part of STOXX’s integrated index family and follow a strict rules-based methodology. The “iSTOXX” brand typically comprises less standardized index concepts that are not integrated in the STOXX Global index family, but are nevertheless strictly rules-based. While indices that are branded “STOXX” and “iSTOXX” are developed by STOXX for a broad range of market participants, the “STOXX Customized” brand covers indices that are specifically developed for clients and do not carry the STOXX brand in the index name. Under the Omnient brand, STOXX offers custom indices from its existing index universe.

    STOXX indices are licensed to more than 600 companies around the world as underlyings for Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), futures and options, structured products and passively managed investment funds. Three of the top ETFs in Europe and approximately 25% of all assets under management are based on STOXX indices. STOXX Ltd. holds Europe's number one and the world's number two position in the derivatives segment.

    STOXX is part of Deutsche Boerse Group, and also calculates, disseminates and markets the DAX indices.

    Strong month for Eurex' Equity segment

    In July, Eurex, Europe’s largest derivatives exchange and part of Deutsche Börse Group, has seen strong demand for its equity products. Traded equity contracts were up by 76 percent to 23,790,806 from 13,506,099 in July 2017. Demand was particularly high for Single Stock Dividend Futures (+87 percent) with 435,018 traded contracts.

    Overall, the trading volume at Eurex increased by 9 percent to 109,870,543 from 100,888,442 in July 2017. In the Equity Index Segment, volumes went up by 10 percent to 55,354,047.

    Turnover in the Fixed Income space declined by 17 percent to 30,723,777 traded contracts.
    Eurex’ recently launched EURO STOXX 50® options with month-end expirations had a successful start with nearly 40,000 traded contracts. Introduced on 9 July, the product is another part of Eurex’ buy-side initiative as it meets the needs of insurers and other market participants that offer pension schemes linked to the performance of the EURO STOXX 50® index.

    Thus far, these clients turned to the over-the-counter (OTC) market to hedge the resulting exposure. By offering EURO STOXX 50® options with month-end expirations, Eurex took another step in the exchange’s efforts to facilitate the ongoing transition from tailor-made OTC products into an exchange traded and cleared environment that is part of the strategy of Deutsche Börse Group.

    iSTOXX Developed Markets B.R.AI.N. Index licensed to Coincapital

    ZURICH (July 31, 2018) -  STOXX Ltd., the operator of Deutsche Boerse Group’s index business and a global provider of innovative and tradable index concepts, has licensed the iSTOXX Developed Markets B.R.AI.N. Index to the Canadian Coin Capital Investment Management Inc (Coincapital). The index uses FactSet Revere data to identify sectors likely to benefit from increased prevalence of four different themes: biotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and nanotechnology.

    “Tracking emerging technologies requires specialized expertise, and Coincapital is excited to work with STOXX on this index. The B.R.AI.N. Index is a great step towards offering investors easy access to the immense growth potential of emerging technologies like biotech, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology,” said Lewis Batemen, CEO of Coin Capital Investment Management Inc.

    “The iSTOXX Developed Market B.R.AI.N. Index is part of the growing iSTOXX FactSet Thematic index family, which has seen strong investor demand for single-theme indices launched so far. They give investors access to the most important megatrends of our age. This particular thematic index selects stocks from four megatrends that are expected to change the world as we know it. Biotech, robotics, AI and nanotech have their popularity on the rise, and potential applications across many industries,” said Matteo Andreetto, CEO of STOXX Limited.

    The iSTOXX Developed Markets B.R.AI.N. Index is made up of companies that generate more than 50 % of their revenue from biotechnology (B), robotics (R), artificial intelligence (AI), or nanotechnology (N). Following an initial liquidity filter, all stocks in the STOXX Developed Markets Total Market Index are screened through FactSet Revere’s granular business segment analysis to assess their exposure to each megatrend tracked by the B.R.AI.N Index. The index selects the top companies in terms of revenue exposure from each theme and combines them in the same basket.
