Moscow Exchange MOEX

Moscow Exchange (MOEX) just announced that, starting from April 1, 2019, it will begin calculating and publishing daily sustainability indices created jointly with the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP).

The indices will be based on RSPP’s annual analysis of Russia’s largest companies demonstrating a robust ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) profile.

The MOEX-RSPP Responsibility and Transparency Index will comprise 22 companies, while the MOEX-RSPP Sustainability Vector Index will feature 15, showing the greatest progress in terms of ESG compared to the previous year.

The indices will be reviewed annually.

MOEX has recently launched trading in options on its new futures offering, the US 500 Index futures contract and updated its version of the FAST protocol and a new FAST Full_orders_log Online service to enhance market data delivery from its Derivatives Market.
