    The Dow Jones Euro Stoxx 50 (EURO STOXX 50) is the leading index for Europe’s top companies.

    The index consists of 50 top-sector companies from 12 eurozone countries. The EURO STOXX 50 was established in 1998 and is a joint venture of the Deutsche Boerse AG, Dow Jones & Company and the SIX Swiss Exchange.

    The composition of the index is reviewed each year in September and the criterion for listing is the market capitalisation of a company, based on a free float or widely held stock with a 10% weighting cap.

    The largest percentage of companies come from France and Germany. The banking sector makes up the largest portion of the EURO STOXX 50.
