    STOXX® Global Fintech Index licensed to Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management

    ZUG (Oct. 18, 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 Global Fintech Index to Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management as an underlying for an investment fund.

    The index is comprised of companies associated with financial technology (fintech). These businesses use technology to change how financial services are offered to end customers. They also boost the competitive edge of traditional financial service providers by improving efficiencies and driving new products and solutions. Revere Business Industry Classification System (RBICS) data allow a detailed breakdown of the revenue sources of the eligible companies, helping this index to select companies with substantial fintech exposure.

    “As the second product for our Innovation Index Series, we have selected the fintech theme. Here in Japan and also globally, the financial industry is being exposed to a new wave of innovation driven by companies that provide technology and solutions for financial purposes. The STOXX Global Fintech Index captures these companies and we expect that this global theme will continue to show growth opportunities in the years to come,” said Tsuneto Iki, Executive Director of Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management.

    “Fintech is vastly remodeling the transactional and profit landscape for banks, asset managers, brokers, insurers, trading venues and retail. Just think of disruptive practices such as online payments, robo advisors and peer-to-peer insurance. The STOXX Global Fintech Index aims to capture this theme and is an innovative addition to our unique thematic offering,” said Inderpal Gujral, STOXX’s Head of Product.

    The underlying universe for the STOXX Global Fintech Index is the STOXX® Developed and Emerging Total Market Index. The Fintech Index follows the same revenue-based selection methodology applied by other STOXX Thematic Indices. Companies with at least 50% of their sales stemming in aggregate from a range of more than 30 fintech-related sectors are selected for the index. These sectors include blockchain technology, commodities trading services, payment processing software, retail brokerages, financial and compliance software, money transfer services, and trade execution services. Weightings are defined by each stock’s fintech-related sector exposure multiplied by its market capitalization.

    Deutsche Börse welcomes HANetf as new ETF issuer on Xetra

    Since Thursday, three ETFs of the new issuer HANetf have been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt for the first time. HANetf has listed the first ETF in Europe via its white label platform and additionally two own products.

    HANetf's white label platform provides the infrastructure to launch and manage UCITS-regulated ETFs in Europe. This enables providers outside Europe or issuers without their own infrastructure to list their products cost-effectively on the trading venues of Deutsche Börse.

    The first ETF launched via the white label platform is the EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & E-commerce UCITS ETF. The ETF enables investors to participate in the performance of emerging market companies active in the e-commerce, internet trading and internet services sectors. The focus is on companies from the areas of internet broadcasting, internet media, online advertising, online travel services, online games, search engines and social networks.

    "With HANetf, we are gaining another innovative issuer for our ETF segment“, said Martin Reck, Managing Director for Deutsche Börse’s Cash Market. „The first ETF in Europe, listed via an independent white label platform, enriches our product offering and once again underlines Deutsche Börse's attractiveness as a leading listing and trading platform in the European ETF market".

    Hector McNeil, co-CEO of HANetf commented: “HANetf serves investors across Europe and it is critical for us and on-platform clients to ensure that our funds are available in the largest marketplaces. XETRA is the pre-eminent venue for ETF order book liquidity in continental Europe and we are delighted to have reached the significant milestone of our first listing.”

    HANetf's two in-house ETFs allow investors to participate in the performance of companies that focus on innovative technologies.

    The HAN-GINS Cloud Technology UCITS ETF allows investors to invest in companies that are active in the cloud computing sector or are looking to invest in a related sector.

    The HAN-GINS Innovative Technologies UCITS ETF gives investors the opportunity to participate in the performance of companies involved in innovative and disruptive technological trends. These companies must generate the majority of their turnover from the areas of blockchain, cloud computing, cyber security, future cars, genomics, robotics and automation, social media or virtual/extended reality.

    Frankfurt's "Bull and Bear" sculptures turn 30

    They are popular with tourists, a favourite television backdrop and a symbol of Frankfurt as a financial centre: the "bull and bear" sculptures in front of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is turning 30 on Saturday.

    On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in 1985, the Management Board of the Stock Exchange commissioned the Frankfurt-born sculptor Reinhard Dachlauer to produce the two bronze sculptures. Three years later, on 6 October 1988, "Bulle und Bär" were set up on the east side of the square in front of the stock exchange and handed over to the City of Frankfurt.

    Since then, the sculptures have not only served as photo backdrops for ten thousands of tourists and stock exchange visitors every year, they have also been used by companies to stage their IPOs in the media. Before the first share price is determined on the trading floor and the stock exchange bell is rung, the photo in front of the bull and bear is a must.

    As globally known stock exchange symbols, the animals stand for the ups and downs in stock trading. How exactly the two animals came to their role is not clearly proven. One common explanation today refers to the different fighting behaviours of the two animals in show fights, which are said to have taken place in the 17th century near the London Stock Exchange.

    While the bull tries to take its opponent in an upward movement on the horns, the bear hits with its paws from top to bottom. That is why the bull stands for rising prices and economic upswing. Stockbrokers therefore speak of a "bull market" in a positive market environment – and call optimists, who buy stocks, "bullish".

    In contrast, the bear symbolises falling prices. If the stock market values are broadly in minus, there is talk of a "bear market". Investors who bet on falling prices are then called "bearish".
