Dow Jones Indexes launches eight new indexes in major expansion of European product line


In a significant expansion of its European suite of offerings, Dow Jones Indexes has announced the launch of new dividend-focused and real estate indexes.

The eight additions are the latest in Dow Jones Indexes’ succession of new market barometers underscoring the global index provider’s revitalised commitment to a region as reflected by the theme of its new marketing campaign: “Focus Europe”. Dow Jones Indexes plans to roll out a series of strategically targeted “Focus Europe” print and online advertisements in European indexing and structured products trade publications in addition to placing related displays on its website.

So far in 2011, Dow Jones Indexes has unveiled for the European markets two volatility index series on September 13: the Dow Jones Europe Volatility Risk Control Indexes and the Dow Jones Eurozone Volatility Risk Control Indexes; and two blue-chip indexes on June 20: the Dow Jones Europe Titans 80 Index and the Dow Jones Eurozone Titans 80 Index.

The new indexes launched are:

Dow Jones Europe Select Dividend 30 Index;
Dow Jones Eurozone Select Dividend 30 Index;
Dow Jones Europe Select Dividend 30 Distributing Index;
Dow Jones Eurozone Select Dividend 30 Distributing Index;
Dow Jones France Select Dividend 20 Distributing Index;
Dow Jones Germany Select Dividend 20 Distributing Index;
Dow Jones Europe Developed Markets Select Real Estate Securities Index;
Dow Jones Europe Developed Markets Select REIT Index

The Dow Jones Eurozone indexes and the Dow Jones Europe indexes both measure the performance of leading stocks that trade in the developed markets of these regions. All of the new indexes are designed to serve as the underlying instruments for investment products such as mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and as benchmarks.

“The launch of these new indexes provides a broader assortment of financial measurement tools for investors seeking to make thoughtful decisions about market opportunities in Europe,” says Michael A Petronella (pictured), President, Dow Jones Indexes. “By expanding our suite of offerings in this vital region, Dow Jones Indexes has once again demonstrated that the potential for growth in Europe remains a critical component of our strategic business plan.”
