The ATX family of indices is made up exclusively of indices with Austrian constituents. The ATX, the leading index of the Vienna Stock Exchange, includes constituents of the highest liquidity and capitalization in the Austrian capital market, while the ATX Prime, a classic sector index, contains securities listed on the prime market. ATX Five reflects the five strongest shares and thus the corporations that make up most of the trading volume. IATX features real estate securities listed on the prime market. The WBI is the oldest index of the Vienna Stock Exchange, an all-share index that has been calculated since 1967.
The indices of the Central, Eastern and Southeastern European region are amongst the core competences of the Vienna Stock Exchange. In addition to individual country indices, the Vienna Stock Exchange also offers regional indices according to the CECE principle.
The CECExt, consisting of the CECE Composite Index and the SETX covers nearly all Eastern European capital markets and thus allows for wide diversification. Sector indices are meant to highlight the development of individual industries.
The Vienna Stock Exchange is among the most active vendors of indices based on the markets of the CIS region. The RTX, one of the most well known indices, and the RTX MID enable investments in the corporations listed in local currency (RUB) at the Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange (MICEX) that have the highest liquidity and capitalization. RDX and the RDXxt can be seen as counterparts based on depositary receipts listed in USD at the London IOB market. The Sector Indices were designed to reflect the development of single sectors of the Russian market.
The UTX emerged from cooperation with the Ukrainian Stock Exchange PFTS and enables investments in the Ukrainian market.
With the Theme- & Style Indices, the Vienna Stock Exchange answers the increased demands on indices made by the international marketplace. VÖNIX and CEERIUS focus on the subject of ecology and, following strict guidelines, combines in an index the best companies operating in that area. The Short Indices allow investors to bet on falling stock prices. In the fundamental indices the index constituents are weighted according to certain fundamental ratios. The Top Dividend Indices consist of the companies with the highest dividend yield.
