Eurex expands strategic relationship with MSCI

Eurex and MSCI have signed an agreement on the long-term extension of their strategic relationship. In addition to the long-term extension of the license agreement on futures and options, MSCI will license new indexes to Eurex for listed ESG equity index derivatives and Total Return Futures (TRF).

The successful MSCI index-linked product offering at Eurex will be expanded in the coming months to include ESG equity index derivatives. This will serve the strongly growing demand for sustainable investments and the trend towards listed and centrally cleared contracts

With 120 listed MSCI index-based futures, 20 MSCI index-based options and an open interest of around 2.5 million contracts, Eurex is the exchange with the broadest MSCI index-linked offering tradable on one platform and the highest open interest globally.
