New equity indexes and the implementation of OMX name standard for Icelandic indexes

New equity indexes and the implementation of OMX name standard for Icelandic indexes

 

As of April 2 the companies listed on the OMX Nordic Exchange in Iceland will be presented on the common Nordic list. At the same time, the Icelandic companies will be included in the Nordic indexes. In connection with the inclusion, the Icelandic equity indexes will adopt new names according to the OMX name standard.

 

The Nordic list indexes include the Nordic All-Share indexes, Nordic List Segment indexes and Nordic Sector indexes. The OMX Nordic Segment indexes comprise of the three market capitalization groups, Large Cap, Mid Cap and Small Cap. In addition to the introduction of Icelandic shares into the Nordic indexes, local Mid Cap and Small Cap segment indexes and local sector total return (gross) indexes will be launched on the OMX Nordic Exchange in Iceland. All new indexes will be calculated in Icelandic Krona (ISK) and as price and gross indexes.

 

The name and code changes of the ICEX indexes will take effect on April 2 to meet the OMX index name standard. The index codes start with OMX followed by letters which indicate the OMX exchange in question. The Icelandic indexes will start with OMXI where the “I” stands for Iceland. A list of the new indexes and codes is attached to this notice.
