Deutsche Borse - Qontigo – STOXX and DAX Indices
Brief description of the data offering
Qontigo provides a comprehensive and innovative suite of transparent and rules-based ESG indices that meet a wide scope of responsible criteria.
Sustainable investing has moved to the core of asset portfolios. Index-based strategies are facilitating this transition. This evolution will continue unabated, to the benefit of the broader world.
Qontigo is facilitating this transition through a robust ESG ecosystem which seeks liquidity, transparency, cost efficiency and best-in-class data quality. Our ecosystem is comprised of ESG-X indices (negative exclusions) , ESG integration and positive screening (e.g. EURO STOXX 50 ESG); and socially responsible and impact investing is in development.
A good showcase how we serve the entire ESG ecosystem is the STOXX Europe 600 ESG-X Index. It has become the basis for a variety of products and purposes, encompassing futures, options, ETFs, structured products and benchmarking.
