ESG 80 in the spotlight


FOW - Global Investor Group

Interview - January 2021

Innovation and flexibility drive Euronext derivatives growth

Euronext has had a busy year, working hard to increase the competitive edge amid large European rivals in the derivatives space.

Recent highlights for the European exchange group include [...] the delivery of single stock dividend futures with shorter maturities in late 2019 and into early 2020. In light of the volatility that swept the market and the disruption to regular dividend cycles caused by the escalating COVID-19 pandemic beginning of 2020, these launches were a masterstroke. They also led to Euronext winning the FOW International European Exchange and Exchange Innovation of the Year awards for 2020.
