Derivatives

FTSE Russell Index-based derivatives include futures and options, financial contracts that provide investors with exposure to the performance of an asset class or group of stocks in a single trade. They are often used as risk-hedging tools bought with the expectation that the value of the underlying index will increase or decrease during the time of the contract. Investors choosing these products can gain access to more difficult to reach asset classes, regions and categories.

FTSE Russell does not distribute futures or options products. These products are listed for trading on the exchanges noted below; please contact the exchange or your broker for more information.

Case study

Country classification, market access and potential implications for investors – The 2019 example of Saudi Arabia’s inclusion as Secondary Emerging Market

FTSE Russell has licensed the FTSE Saudi Arabia Index to Nasdaq Dubai. In February 2019, the local exchange launched futures contracts on the index. In a series of video interviews in partnership with Nasdaq Dubai, Gary Rynhoud, head of Middle East and Africa, FTSE Russell, elaborates on the example of the Saudi Arabia stock market and FTSE’s criteria for inclusion as Secondary Emerging Market. Gary explains the FTSE country classification process, its potential implication for investors’ strategies and the increase over time in the use of benchmarks.
