NYSE EURONEXT launches low risk indices with Finvex
NYSE Euronext, in partnership with Finvex Group has launched two new low risk Index series: The CAC® Low Risk Index and the AEX® Low Risk Index.
These indices provide risk adjusted exposure to both markets. Low risk indices target superior returns at lower risk among others due to the compounding effect of stability over traditional market capitalization weighted indices. Complementing traditional equity exposure with risk efficient equity exposure generally offers superior results in an asset allocation framework.
“We are very pleased to partner with Finvex to provide advanced risk adjusted investment technology; extending our product range by adding the CAC and AEX Low Risk Indices. The new indices provide investors with new opportunities to participate in risk optimized variants of our French and Dutch blue chips”, says George Patterson, Head of NYSE Euronext’s NYX Indices Group.
“Indices based on robust risk reduction technology are an attractive alternative or complement to traditional benchmarks that generally do not include any risk element. NYSE Euronext’s high quality platform is now including these advanced solutions and we are confident their client base will start tracking or using these indices in the near future”, says Benedict Peeters, co-founder of Finvex Group.
