The index world: DAX family
Representing investment strategies in transparent, rule-based and cost-efficient ways
The blue chip index DAX® is probably Deutsche Börse's best-known product. However, significantly fewer people know that DAX is also a registered trademark of Deutsche Börse and that the index family has been continuously extended and further developed ever since the DAX launch in 1988.
DAX – the main indicators for the German stock market
Deutsche Börse operates and calculates four German indices of global significance: DAX, MDAX®, SDAX® and TecDAX®. These indices provide transparency and a clear structure for the German market. In addition, they serve – like many of our index products – as attractive basis products for derivative financial instruments. DAX is the world’s third-largest derivatives index.
