Industry Innovation

In 1993, Cboe revolutionized investing with the creation of the VIX Index, the first benchmark index to measure the market’s expectation of future volatility. The VIX Index is based on options of the S&P 500 Index and is recognized as the world’s premier gauge of U.S. equity market volatility.

Almost three decades later, Cboe continues to look for new ways to make complex investment ideas more accessible. Today, Cboe’s Global Indices business carries on the company’s legacy of innovation and solutions-focused indices, providing index design, implementation, calculation, maintenance, administration and data distribution services for a suite of custom indices and benchmarks. The goal? To help clients gain market insights and better understand their portfolio risk in real-time by providing transparency, access and ease to customers to drive better-informed, more confident trading decisions. 

Going forward, Cboe’s continued focus is on defining markets to benefit all participants through product innovation, disruptive technology and seamless trading solutions.
