The index selects quality companies from the components of the broad STOXX Global 1800 ex Australia Index, based on fundamental indicators.

“Our Global Quality Leaders ETF gives investors access to a cost-effective investment that they can use as a core portfolio allocation for international equities. We’re excited to be partnering with STOXX to bring this fund to the ASX, and have been impressed with the rigour and thoughtfulness displayed by STOXX in developing this index,” said Alex Vynokur, CEO of Betashares.

“The iSTOXX MUTB Quality Indices aim to capture the performance of quality companies with high profitability, low leverage and sustainable cash flows. Investors tend to be drawn to these companies during periods of economic contraction. The indices are available for different STOXX universes.

To provide market participants with optimal transparency, STOXX indices are classified into four categories. Regular “STOXX” indices include all standard, theme and strategy indices that are part of STOXX’s integrated index family and follow a strict rules-based methodology.

While indices that are branded “STOXX” and “iSTOXX” are developed by STOXX for a broad range of market participants, the “STOXX Customized” brand covers indices that are specifically developed for clients and do not carry the STOXX brand in the index name. Under the Omnient brand, STOXX offers custom indices from its existing index universe.

STOXX indices are licensed to more than 600 companies around the world as underlyings for Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), futures and options, structured products and passively managed investment funds. Three of the top ETFs in Europe and approximately 25% of all assets under management are based on STOXX indices. STOXX Ltd. holds Europe's number one and the world's number two position in the derivatives segment.
