New index rules

Deutsche Börse will apply new index rules to be effective as of 24 September 2018. Further information can be found in the press release from 5 September 2018.

Indices group various securities according to defined criteria, such as the market capitalisation of the respective company and exchange turnover in the security, membership of a market or sector – and track how these groups then perform in the capital markets. The indices thus enable comparison between the trend for a particular security and the performance of the relevant reference group. As such, companies are charted within their peer group, enabling investors to make more targeted investment decisions.

Deusche Börse offers an innovative selection of indices and index solutions. Deutsche Börse AG makes the decisions regarding the calculation and compilation of equity indices together with the Working Committee for Equity Indices.

Overview of content

Selection indices

DAX®, MDAX®, TecDAX® and SDAX® are Deutsche Börse selection indices. Criteria for inclusion are, in addition to market capitalisation and exchange turnover, admission of the company’s securities to Prime Standard and admission to trading in the model “Continuous Trading” at the Xetra® trading venue.

In the form of GEX®, Deutsche Börse has defined the criterion of the founder-managed or owner-run company as the basis for an index. GEX® is the indicator for the stock market performance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The DAXplus® Family 30 tracks founder-dominated companies. This “family index” contains the 30 largest family-managed firms by market capitalisation.

A listing of the firm’s securities in Prime Standard is a prerequisite for inclusion in one of these selection indices.
