Harness the potential of the dividend market

S&P 500 Quarterly Dividend Index futures provide you with efficient tools to hedge or express a view on the U.S. dividend market, regardless of the price movement of the benchmark indices. The S&P 500 Dividend Points Index (SPXDIV) tracks the accumulation of dividends on a quarterly basis and resets to zero at the end of each period. The observation period is the prior contract expiration date plus one trading day through the contract’s expiration.
