Stock market indices for Europe, Asia, the US and globally, all down in 2011, says STOXX


As of 30 December, 2011 stock market indices in Europe, Asia, the US and globally were down in 2011, according to global index provider STOXX Limited. For the month of December, the Europe, Asia, US and global markets were up 4.46%, 3.32% and 3.89%, respectively.

“Over the course of 2011, the EURO STOXX 50 Index lost 17.05% while the EURO STOXX 50 Risk Control 15% Index only lost 7.83%. The risk control investment strategy replicated by the STOXX Risk Control Indices reacts to high volatility in the market and aims to control the risk of the underlying index. While in the beginning of 2011, the underlying EURO STOXX 50 Index outperformed the risk control version, the strategy kicked in when volatility in the European markets started to rise around the middle of the year,” says Hartmut Graf, chief executive officer, STOXX Limited. “The portfolio of the EURO STOXX 50 Risk Control 15% Index consists of an investment into the EURO STOXX 50 Index and the money market (EONIA). In order to achieve risk control, the asset allocation is shifted between the two investments, targeting a risk of 15%. Various risk percentages are available for different markets.”
