ETFs, or trackers as they are called on Euronext, replicate an index or track the performance of a basket of stocks. They let investors gain exposure to a country, an economic sector or a region through a single contract. Euronext’s ETF segment, NextTrack, contains a range of national indexes such as the Dutch AEX and the French Cac40. It also contains regional indexes, such as the eurozone Dow Jones Euro Stoxx 50, and sector indexes, such as the FTSE Global Autos index.
