Three ways to win

Hello Traders,

Football Index have been trialing Goal and Assist Dividends during October and November. As that trial draws to a close, we’d like to give you an update on the future of the platform and the place of these dividends within it. Thank you to all our users for the feedback they’ve given that has helped us understand some of the reasons traders love Football Index, and what aspects of G&A they liked and what they thought could be improved.

The main value drivers for buying a share will continue to be Match Day and Media Dividends. We’ve got a mission to be the platform that doesn’t sweep your money away at the final whistle and these core characteristics aren’t changing.

We do want to broaden our appeal to a bigger audience though, and in such a way that they participate in and add liquidity to that same market. Therefore, we’re going to continue and expand on Goal and Assist Dividends with In-Play Dividends that will add excitement and short-term win opportunities and provide a reward to users that trade regularly. Based on trading data we collected during the trial, over 80% of dividends likely continue to relate to the existing dividend structure. There are many strategies and opportunities to win on Football Index, and we recommend a balanced approach, that doesn’t focus too heavily on In-Play Dividends, but the other longer-term strengths of your trading selections.


Why  are  you  changing  anything  at  all? 

There  are  many  reasons  that  support  the  introduction  of  In-Play  Dividends,  some  of  the  major  ones  include:

    -  Some  prospective  new  customers  visit  or  try  Football  Index  but  don't  continue  because  there's  no  short-term  win  opportunity.

-  Instant  wins  during  a  game  can  be  very  engaging  and  exciting.

-  It's  simple  to  explain  this  aspect  of  how  traders  can  win.

-  We  want  to  reward  regular  trading  without  incentivising  selling  with  offers  like  'cash  back  on  commissions'.

-  A  broader  spread  of  footballers  and  traders  having  a  winning  experience  should  help  new  users  get  engaged  with  the platform.

What  competitions  are  eligible  for  In-Play  Dividends? 

- English  Premier  League

- Spanish  La  Liga

- French  Ligue  1

- Italian  Serie  A

- German  Bundesliga

- UEFA  Champions  League

- UEFA  Europa  League

- UEFA  Nations  League. 

It's  likely that major  competitions  such  as  World  Cups  will  qualify,  however  these  are  announced  on  a  case  by  case  basis.

Frequently Asked 

Questions

Why  is  there  a  30-day  limit?

We  chose  a  30-day  limit  so  that  we  can  have  an  exciting  dividend  amount  on  a  sustainable  basis  and  so  that  regular  trading  is  rewarded.  Longer  periods  would  have  likely  resulted  in  a  less  attractive  dividend amount.

Some of my shares are older than 30 days, how can I benefit?

If  you  hold  shares  in  a  footballer  that  regularly  achieves  some  of  these  events,  you  may  see  some  price  changes  if  other  traders  buy  on  that  basis.  You  may  sell  shares  and  re-buy  to  make  your  portfolio  eligible,  but  we  recommend  considering  your  trades  carefully,  as  it's  possible  to  have  very  effective  trading  strategies  that  don't  include  winning  these  dividends  every  time.  As  always,  we  encourage  all  traders  to  gamble  responsibly.

Why  do  you  pay  out  differently  for  different  positions?

Payouts  are  based  on  simulations  and  analysis  that  showed  a  balanced  percentage  yield  vs  price  for  each  category  of  footballer  at  these  payout  levels.

Why  don't  defenders  get  a  dividend  for a clean sheet?

Based on  our  analysis  Clean  Sheets  weren't  an  exceptional  enough  event  to  justify  a  meaningful  dividend for defenders and would sometimes  reward  defenders  that  didn't  contribute  significantly  to  that  outcome.

What happens if a goalkeeper is substituted or sent off?

 To qualify for a dividend, the  starting Goalkeeper must keep a Clean Sheet for the full game, including stoppage time and extra time, but not penalty shootouts. 

What  about  Own Goals?

Own  goals  don't  count  as  a  goal for the scorer.  It  is possible  for  a  footballer  on  the  side  that  gained  from  an  own  goal  to  be  credited  with  an  assist,  if  attributed  by  Opta.

What  about  extra  time  and  penalty shoot outs?

Events  that  occur  in stoppage time or extra  time  count,  however  penalty  shoot  outs  do  not count.

Future developments to make In-Play Dividends work for you

We’ve mentioned previously that we’re in the process of rebuilding Football Index’s technical platform from the ground up, to allow us to build and scale for the future and multiple Indexes. Frustratingly this has delayed features and improvements we’ve been keen to add in the past year. This transition is now very close to completion and we look forward to a much speedier development cycle in 2019, which will include automating In-Play Dividends, our exciting Nasdaq collaboration, and other enhancements. With that context, while we won’t achieve our long-term vision immediately, we’d like to tell you about our plans and some of the In-Play related changes we’ll roll out in time.

- An update to official Game Rules

- In-Play Dividends will proceed under promotional terms until our Game Rules are formally updated on the website and app. We'll also be making the Game Rules easier to navigate and read. 

- In-Play payouts and notifications

- We’re delivering these payments manually at the moment which is why payouts are weekly in the short term and in bulk. In the long term, daily or instant payouts are what we’d like to deliver. 

- Filters in your portfolio to show the age of your shares.

- While we don’t recommend trading exclusively for these dividends, some traders will want to. We’ll be adding filters to the portfolio so that you can see shares purchased before and/or after certain dates, to make it easier and more transparent to see where you stand. 

- It's possible that we’ll also add functionality to ‘roll’ or ‘renew’ shares, but there are many priorities focused on our core offering, that rank ahead of this.
