Eurex to offer derivatives trading of contracts based on Vienna Stock Exchange indices

Germany-based bourse Eurex announced on Oct. 28 that it will soon list derivatives products that are based around indices that are currently listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange.

As a result, global market participants will have an easier time gaining exposure to Austrian securities, according to Banking Technology. By the end of last month, a total of more than 6.8 million Austrian derivatives contracts had been traded on Eurex for 2013.

The Germany-based bourse has indicated that it does not plan to wait too long before it begins offering derivatives trading of contracts that are based around these key Austrian indices. These risk management tools will include both futures and options derived from these measures of the value of variousĀ securities.

Mehtap Dinc, member of the Eurex executive board, noted that offering the new derivatives trading will provide market participants with access to financial instruments that are related to key markets, the media outlet reported.

"The planned index derivatives will expand our equity index derivative segment to include further key central and eastern European markets," Dinc told Banking Technology. "We will thus be enabling market participants to trade new exchange-listed index futures and options on the Eurex Exchange."
