Derivatives market

In the derivatives market, business areas for trading and clearing deriavtives and repos are combined. Derivatives are financial instruments based on other instruments (e.g. equities, indices, bonds, currencies, or commodities). Via the different trading platforms of Deutsche Börse Group, investors get access to a broad range of futures and options contracts on interest rate, equity index and equity products, as well as on gas, electricity and emission rights. By trading in derivatives, investors are able to hedge against market and price risks arising from equities and bonds, for instance.

Eurex Exchange

Deutsche Börse’s Eurex Exchange is one of the world’s largest regulated markets for derivatives trading. Eurex Exchange provides access to a broad range of global benchmark products. Overall, the portfolio comprises more than 2,000 exchange-traded derivatives. The derivatives on Euro-Bund, Euro-Bobl and Euro-Schatz are the world’s leading fixed-income derivatives and have developed into the benchmark for bond trading in euro. Moreover, the euro-denominated equity index derivatives rank among the most heavily traded products of this asset class. The range includes futures and options on the most liquid global, European and national indices such as DAX®, SMI®, STOXX®, Dow Jones and MSCI and also daily futures on the Korean KOSPI 200 Options.
