Indices

Euronext manages, calculates and publishes indices of all sizes and profiles—global, Country and Cross Border Indices, by sector, strategy and Theme Indices. These indices aim to represent the performance of the Euronext equity markets, and measure investor sentiment about the financial markets and the state of the economy.

With over 25 years of experience, the Index Group at Euronext develops a wide range of Indices that provide investors and issuers benchmarks necessary to measure and trade the performance of key segments and strategies throughout the world.

The Index Group at Euronext manages hundreds of Indices around the globe including blue-chip, national, regional, sector, strategy and theme Indices.

In addition to our Euronext Indices, we also operate a large number of Third Party and Partner Indices.

Increase your visibility and liquidity

Inclusion in an index increases your stock’s visibility in the financial community and boosts trading volumes. The well-known and recognized Euronext indices make it possible to create numerous structured products and become key benchmarks for portfolio managers and investors.

Stock market indices are in effect used by professional fund managers to compare their investment performance with an undisputed, widely published benchmark. Inclusion in an index thus gives visibility to the companies used in the sample. For example, inclusion in an index has an effect on the number of financial analysts who cover the stock, thereby enhancing its reputation and liquidity.

There are various indices of all types, sizes and complementary profiles. It is not necessary to apply for inclusion in an index, just as a company cannot block its inclusion.  Euronext offers its services to companies to explain the technical criteria used and the company’s position in respect of these criteria.

Global indices

The range of global indices, which include European indices and indices covering the Euronext markets, includes the Euronext 100®, Next 150®, FTSEurofirst 80®, FTSEurofirst 100®, and Euronext Growth All-Share Indices.

Country and Cross Border Indices

Sector indices

Sector indices enable investors to benchmark the performance of stocks grouped by specific market sectors or industries. It empowers investors to make more selective choices, and listed companies to better track progress relative to their respective peer group.

Strategy Indices

In contrast to broad-based market and sector Indices that group companies by size or industry, strategy Indices reflect the performance of a rule-based investment strategy.

The world is changing and so are the themes surrounding investment opportunities. Euronext is continuously expanding its portfolio of indices to ensure that investors, asset managers and structured products issuers have the means to match their needs to market trends.
