Winners and losers
An entire market in a single security
Index certificates rely on a variety of underlying assets. Many track a stock index: With a DAX index certificate your investment replicates the performance of the leading German stock index. If the exchange barometer rises by five percent, then your certificate climbs by the same amount. The same applies of course if the DAX falls. The major advantage of this category of certificates: You use a single security to track a whole host of instruments and thus diversify your risk.
What is more, index certificates are uncomplicated and cost-efficient investments in baskets of equities and commodities that would otherwise not necessarily be readily accessible to you. This way you can use them to ensure an even broader diversification of your portfolio.
