Cboe’s pan-European approach allows for comparable benchmarks across Europe for the first time. Unlike current benchmarks, all the Equity Benchmarks will be created with the same methodology and rules.
The Cboe Europe license is straightforward and can be easily extended to other indices.
Where other index providers are making index licenses more complex and dramatically more expensive, Cboe Europe Equity Benchmarks are free of charge for retail distribution, to media outlets and for benchmarking purposes.
Cboe Europe is a Recognised Investment Exchange (RIE) regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and takes account of and follows the relevant IOSCO Principles For Financial Benchmarks for its indexes.
