MIAX to Launch Suite of BRIXX™ Commercial Real Estate Futures on MGEX

MIAX | September 16, 2021

MIAX, creator and operator of high-performance securities exchanges, products and services, will launch cash-settled futures contracts on BRIXX™ Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Indexes developed by Advanced Fundamentals.  The first contract to be listed will be the BRIXX Retail Index futures contract which is expected to begin trading on October 4, 2021.  Three additional BRIXX CRE Index futures are expected to be listed in the fourth quarter of 2021.  Cash-settled options on the BRIXX CRE Indexes will launch on MIAX, also targeted for fourth quarter of 2021. The launch of the futures and options contracts remain subject to regulatory approval.

BRIXX futures and options will provide investors with targeted exposure to the $16 trillion commercial real estate market, including the Residential, Retail, Office and Hospitality commercial real estate sectors.  BRIXX CRE Indexes measure real-time real estate returns and are priced using real-time public market data aggregating over $750 billion in property values. The design also allows the BRIXX CRE Indexes to be priced in terms that real estate professionals know and understand such as price per room key (Hospitality), or price per square foot (Residential, Office, Retail).

We are pleased to launch the new BRIXX CRE futures, which are based on Advanced Fundamentals' suite of index products that measure real estate prices without the pricing lag associated with traditional CRE indexes, These products provide professional real estate investors with an innovative tool that affords real time access and synthetic exposure to the physical real estate market

-Thomas P. Gallagher, Chairman of MGEX and Chairman & CEO of MIAX. 

Cash-settled futures contracts will be listed on MGEX via the CME GLOBEX® platform and will be cleared by MGEX, a wholly owned subsidiary of MIAX's parent holding company, Miami International Holdings.

We believe real estate funds and institutional professionals will be attracted to BRIXX futures and options and that the products have the potential to provide an entirely new asset class of commercial real estate derivatives to the industry.  Advanced Fundamentals has devoted significant resources to the design of the BRIXX CRE indexes, incorporating considerable feedback from the industry throughout the design process and we look forward to launching this innovative suite of derivatives for the industry.

- John Smollen, Executive Vice President and Head of Exchange Traded Products and Strategic Relations at MIAX
