Eurex, the world's largest derivatives exchange, and Markit Group Limited ("Markit"), the leading industry source of independent data, portfolio valuations and trade processing for the OTC derivative markets, today announced that Eurex has integrated Markit’s dividend forecasts into Eurex's calculation of settlement prices.
Markit's dividend forecasts will enhance the exchange’s determination of settlement prices by providing clients with improved dividend information out to four years ahead, based on detailed analysis and research.
Eurex is jointly operated by Deutsche Börse AG and SWX Swiss Exchange, and is the market place of choice for electronic trading and clearing of derivatives. Eurex's clearing house is responsible for determining settlement prices for all products listed on the Eurex trading platform. The exchange currently provides settlement prices for more than 600 equity-related products daily.
Markit Equities is the industry standard in dividend forecasting, and provides individual dividend amounts and ex-dividend dates for over 4,600 stocks globally. Markit provides benchmark data for the global financial and commodity derivative markets, and its services are used by over 600 institutions to enhance trading operations, reduce risk and manage compliance.
John Price, Managing Director and Head of Markit Equities, said: "We are delighted that Eurex has integrated Markit’s dividend service as an input to their derivative pricing models. The service is increasingly recognised as the industry benchmark, and users will benefit from information which takes into account the likely volatility of dividend payouts."
Peter Reitz, Member of the Executive Board of Eurex, commented: "Eurex has actively increased its equity-based product range this year with the introduction of Single Stock Futures contracts on all 370 Euro and Swiss Franc-denominated components of the Dow Jones STOXX 600 index and the introduction of additional equity options, bringing the total number of equity options available on Eurex to 180. This broader range of equity derivative products has meant an even greater need for accurate dividend forecasts, given their impact on settlement prices. In recognition of the increased importance of reliable input data, and in order to maintain our leading role in the exchange-traded equity markets, Eurex has integrated Markit’s benchmark dividend forecasts in all proprietary equity pricing models."

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
