STOXX Ltd. is an established and leading index specialist of European origins. The launch of the first STOXX® indices in 1998, including the EURO STOXX 50® index, marked the beginning of a unique success story, based on the company’s neutrality and independence. Since then, STOXX has been at the forefront of market developments, continuously expanding its portfolio of innovative indices - and now operating on a global level, across all asset classes. STOXX Limited is committed to delivering its high-quality, reliable and trusted index offerings to its global client base.

They are used not only as underlyings for financial products such as ETFs, futures and options, and structured products, but also for risk and performance measurement.
