ETF Options: a window to a whole new world

Euronext's ETF options provide new tools for trading sub-groups in the European sectors and emerging markets. Contracts are available on the Amsterdam market via the Central Order Book, with clearing provided by LCH.Clearnet SA.

Options on ETFs offer investors the possibility to:
- create exposure to the performance of an index or sector 
- enhance returns on an ETF portfolio 
- protect a portfolio against a decline
- take advantage of leverage in a transparent and reliable exchange environment.

The efficiency of ETFs. The flexibility of options.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are simple and cost-effective investment products that replicate the performance of an index or sector. They are traded on exchanges like ordinary shares, enabling investors to gain exposure to a chosen market or sector in a single transaction.

Euronext offers options on a variety of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). Options on ETFs operate just like individual equity options, providing the same risk management and portfolio enhancement opportunities. They combine the diversification benefits of ETFs with the flexibility of options.

Euronext also offers weekly options on ETFs, complementing the standard monthly options on ETFs.  Weekly options on ETFs facilitate short-term trading strategies, offering more trading opportunities and allowing investors to anticipate time-specific events and sudden price movements.
