This newly launched index illustrates our efforts and commitment to respond quickly to the market’s needs and underscores the strength of Euronext’s indices as an underlying for all types of products,” explains Michael Hodgson, Head of Licensing, Market and Global Sales at Euronext. “Additionally, the new index will help investors to gain better insight in the overall performance of the Dutch and Belgian stock markets.”

Euronext is also pleased to announce it has licensed the index to Natixis for the creation of Structured Notes.

Eric Le Brusq, Global Head of Equity Derivatives Sales & Financial Engineering for Natixis,added: “This index will bring a simple and direct access to the best traded shares of both the Belgian and the Dutch market. It is a real trigger for all investors in the area, and a real pleasure for Natixis to be partner of Euronext to promote this unique underlying.”
