Deutsche Börse launches Reits index

Deutsche Börse announced in May that it would launch an index covering real estate investment trusts.

The stock exchange will also launch a separate segment for the asset class once the first Reit has been introduced in Germany. The announcement follows the change in German legislation that enables the trading of Reits. But John Davies, senior director of market development at Standard & Poor’s, is concerned that the use of indices as benchmarks across different geographies will lead to problems. He fears that, because the parameters used in each country are different, so inconsistencies will arise in the market.

The Börse will calculate two separate indices. The all-share index will be accessible to German and foreign Reits. The 20 most liquid will then appear in the RX index.
