CSI1000 Index Dividend Forecast | IHS Markit

China’s domestic derivatives markets continue to grow and reached a new milestone on July 22, 2022 with the launch of stock index futures and options on the CSI1000 index. Prior to this development, the China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX) offered index options and futures on the large and mid cap sector of the market, represented by the SSE50 Index, CSI300 Index and CSI500 Index. With the introduction of derivatives to the CSI 1000 index universe, managers will now have the opportunity to deepen their exposure to the Chinese small cap space with adequate hedging tools at their disposal to better manage the risk. The development is also likely to be good news for China’s burgeoning onshore hedge fund scene, with quants keen to seek out arbitrage opportunities.

In light of this development, we are extending our market leading coverage to provide dividend forecasts and calculation of dividend index points across the CSI1000 index universe to better assist our clients in valuing derivatives , to manage risks and identify arbitrage opportunities in this space.
