Bats rolls out suite of European broad market and sector indices

Bats now offers 57 indices across 15 markets including 25 national indices, five pan-European indices, one pan-Nordic index, 24 sector indices, and two Bats Brexit 50/50 indices.

Having launched its index business in June 2016, Bats has quickly established a range of real-time, low-cost alternatives to indices currently on offer by the region’s incumbent index providers, helping to foster greater competition in the space.

In terms of the latest index launches, certain products are designed to compete directly with Stoxx’s widely-followed European range of equity indices, such as the Bats Eurozone 50 (Euro Stoxx 50) and the Bats Europe All Companies (Stoxx All Europe Total Market).

The indices are designed and managed under the same set of consistent Bats’ rules used to create all of Bats’ benchmark indices, and are valued using Bats’ own market data.

The data for the new indices is available on Bats’ website, as well as through various market data vendors. All Bats indices are available free of charge to media clients to distribute in real time and are also free to vendors and for benchmarking purposes.

The 18 new indices include the following regional indices, including 12 European sector indices are outlined below:
