About IPOX.

Our Mission

To apply “Indexing” to the market for New Listings globally.

Here at IPOX Schuster, our philosophy is to classify New Listings (IPOs, Spin-offs and respective M&A) into a separate equity sector for a limited, but substantial period of time after “going public” because New Listings share unique empirical dynamics.

The global range of IPOX Indexes is maintained on a real-time basis by highly experienced professionals.
