More Choices With Euronext’s Single Stock Dividend Futures

Single Stock Dividend Futures are exchange-traded derivatives contracts that allow investors to take positions on dividend payments.

Euronext’s Single Stock Dividend Futures complement its existing dividend index future offering (CAC 40 Dividend Index Future and AEX Dividend Index Future), giving market participants additional investment strategies.

Why trade Single Stock Dividend Futures?

  • Benefit from an efficient hedging tool helping you to manage your dividend exposure
  • Diversify your portfolio by investing in a new asset class
  • Exclusive new trading opportunities: more than 150 contracts in our range can only be traded via Euronext, including many of our new SSDFs on U.S. underlyings

Single Stock Dividend Futures- a class of their own

Dividends are a key component for holders of equity and equity derivatives and are used mostly as a hedging tool. However, dividends are also becoming an asset class of their own: a dividend investment can be seen as corresponding to an equity investment, while often proving more resilient and less volatile than stocks.
