Solutions for Institutional Investors

Nasdaq has been developing market-leading indexes since 1971. Within the last several years, we have grown our offering to more than 40,000 indexes worldwide, covering every asset class and all geographies.

We spend considerable time speaking with members of the buy side community about trends, needs and wants in the benchmark space. Our goal… to garner specifics on what is working well and where enhancements can be made within the index data business. What we heard was that there is considerable room for improvement in two main areas: customer service and benchmark fee structures. 

With that feedback, we leveraged our global leadership position and our award-winning INET technology-driven index calculator to create a suite of benchmark families, comprised of more than 40,000 indexes. Coupled with our hands-on customer service and a new, simplified fee structure, Nasdaq Global Indexes is poised to provide a competitive alternative to typical incumbent providers.
