Index services

open close

Deutsche Börse Group’s index activities are performed by the subsidiary STOXX Ltd. From 2010 to 2015, STOXX Ltd. was a subsidiary of Deutsche Börse AG and SIX Group. In August 2015, Deutsche Börse Group fully acquired STOXX. For our customers this means one single point of contact for all index brands. For our customers, this means one single point of contact for the index brands STOXX and DAX. Together with STOXX Ltd., STOXX and Deutsche Börse AG publish more than 10,850 global indices and benchmarks.

STOXX and DAX indices are licensed to the world's largest issuers of financial products, capital owners and asset managers, as well as to more than 500 companies around the world. They are used as underlyings for financial products such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs), futures and options, and structured products, as well as for risk and performance measurement of investment activities. In addition STOXX develops and produces indices and benchmarks for other index owners, e.g. issuers of financial products, asset managers or other index providers.

The DAX and STOXX indices reflect Deutsche Börse’s core values of transparency, reliability and innovation. Since the introduction of the DAX index more than 25 years ago and the EURO STOXX 50 in 1998, we have continuously expanded our index family with objectivity and rules-based construction as guiding principles.

Regulatory services

open close

Ensuring regulatory compliance with both existing and upcoming regulations poses a major challenge to market participants. Deutsche Börse Group has extensive experience in delivering regulatory reporting solutions as well as managing time-critical data dissemination. A strong team of industry and regulatory experts brings you insights into leading practices when it comes to managing regulatory compliance.

Regulatory reporting from a single source

In order to make reporting as efficient and secure as possible, Deutsche Börse Group offers comprehensive solutions for regulatory compliance on a single platform – the Regulatory Reporting Hub. The Hub enables sell-side and buy-side clients, corporates, regulated markets, MTFs and OTFs to meet their reporting obligations and transparency requirements reliably and efficiently across multiple regulations.

Reference data services

Deutsche Börse provides an extensive and high-quality range of verified master and corporate actions data for vendors and other information multipliers, allowing them to quickly disseminate accurate data to other market participants. Our reference data system WSS provides back offices with settlement-related securities information, whereas Deutsche Börse’s PROPRIS product includes listing, master and corporate actions data.

Infrastructure services

open close

Market mechanisms are used in multiple areas of financial markets replacing bilateral customised interactions. As an experienced developer and operator of market technology and infrastructure, Market Data + Services offers operation of markets for clients using its state-of-the-art market technology and highly scalable global infrastructure. Typically, our clients are small and medium exchanges, energy market participants, software vendors and users of IT infrastructure from the financial industry.

Leveraging Deutsche Börse’s scale, Market Data + Services redeploys existing platforms and infrastructure and offers them “as-a-service” to their clients. Most prominently it makes use of the Group’s “7 Market Technology” series as the first global IT infrastructure offering of its kind. The offering currently comprises T7 (derivatives trading platform), C7 (derivatives clearing platform), N7 (network) and M7 (multi-asset class trading platform focused on energy and commodities). In total, Infrastructure services operates 30 markets across the globe.

Financial market activity is increasingly supported or even automated using intelligent software technologies. This applies to strategy simulation, algorithmic trade execution, order routing, trade surveillance, collateral optimization, regulatory reporting – to name a few. For a growing number of these activities, Market Data + Services offers software functionality as a service. Our applications are centrally hosted in the cloud and can be used by our clients to perform their operations without the burden of upfront investments, configuration management and software maintenance while benefiting from ongoing innovation in all software technologies provided. In addition, all data that is available within Deutsche Börse’s infrastructure is accessible through our applications and can be integrated into our clients’ problem solving processes. Our current product range includes trading tools such as access to a virtual Eurex simulation environment, as well as compliance and regulatory tools that focus on anti-money laundering and EMIR and MiFID reporting requirements.

As financial markets have become more fragmented and global, clients need to process input from many dispersed sources and must interact with multiple counterparties across many different technological domains. That is why Market Data + Services offers access to its ecosystem of vendors, ISVs, venues and markets, clearing houses, security servicers and market participants via its global high performance network N7. N7 currently provides over 6,000 custom-made connections in 26 countries across Europe, North America and Asia. It powers all elements of the trade cycle, from secure access to trading systems, dissemination of real-time market data to delivery of applications and mission critical services. It also inter-connects customers’ own network of offices and data centres.
