Dividend index futures first emerged as a niche market. However they are now an asset class of their own, traded by a broad range of investors globally. The accelerated growth of dividend index futures has been fueled by a growing need to hedge dividend exposure as market participants navigate a new era of uncertainty. 

In response to this global demand, the Montréal Exchange is launching the S&P/TSX 60 Dividend Index* Futures (''SDV''), a futures contract on the S&P/TSX 60 Dividend Points Index (Annual)*, which seeks to track dividends from the constituents of the S&P/TSX 60 Index*. The index tracks the accumulation of dividends paid annually by the constituents of the S&P/TSX 60 Index and resets to zero at the start of the next period, which coincides with the expiration of the S&P/TSX 60 Index futures.  

The MX has partnered with TD Securities to drive the growth and liquidity in the dividend index futures contracts.


Available to investors in Canada, the U.S. and around the world and enabled for trading during extended hours


Ability to implement total return strategies using futures and eliminate counterparty risk


An efficient and liquid on-screen market supported by market makers
