NYSE Euronext has announced the launch of ten new net and gross return indices. Net return indices have been released or the AEX, AMX, AScX and PSI 20, while gross retunr idiocies have been launched for BEL Mid and BEL Small. Net and gross return versions were also introduced for the CAC 40 and AEX Equal Weight indices.
With these new indices all of NYSE Euronext’s main European indices now have a net and gross return version.
“These net and gross return indices have further increased our offering of NYSE Euronext European indices allowing investors and exchange traded product issuers new ways to invest in our indices”, says George Patterson, Managing Director European Indices, Global Index Group, NYSE Euronext.
All NYSE Euronext’s European country return indices use the same calculation methodology. For gross return indices gross dividends declared by the index constituents are reinvested in the index and for net return indices net dividends (ordinary gross dividend minus the amount of withholding tax) are reinvested into the index.
