Related Topics

NYSE Euronext is expanding its range of strategy indices with the launch of six new products based on the CAC 40 index. 



Three new leverage indices track the performance of a strategy that trebles to quintuples exposure to the CAC 40 index with the support of short-term financing. In a rising market, they enable investors to earn a daily return that amplifies that of the underlying index, minus the financing cost embedded in the strategy.
 
Three new short indices track the performance of a strategy that combines a treble to quintuple inverse exposure to the underlying index with the exposure to a risk-free money-market instrument. In a falling market, they enable investors to earn a positive daily return that is the inverse of the underlying index.
 
“The launch of these indices will enlarge our family of strategy indices, reflecting our commitment to providing investors with a wider choice of trading strategies, and issuers of products including ETFs, certificates, warrants and EMTNs with a selection of effective tools to meet their needs and keep pace with market developments,” says George Patterson, head of global index design, global index group at NYSE Euronext.
