Vienna Stock Exchange Launches New Sector Indices

Today, the Vienna Stock Exchange started calculating and publishing new sector indices for the ATX and CEESEG (CEE Stock Exchange Group whose subsidiaries are the exchanges of Budapest, Ljubljana, Prague and Vienna) to round off its range of indices and meet market demand. The ATX sector indices are based on the companies in the ATX Prime, and the CEESEG sector indices include companies contained in the leading indices of the CEE Stock Exchange Group, i.e., the ATX (Austrian Traded Index), the PX (Prague Stock Index), the BUX (Budapest Stock Index), and the SBI TOP (Slovene Blue Chip Index). The sector indices cover stocks from basic industries, consumer products and services, financials, and industrial goods and services. They have been designed to serve as representative benchmarks for investors.

The indices are used as underlyings for investment instruments such as structured products (certificates, exchange-traded funds, warrants, passive managed funds) and standardized derivatives (futures and options). The Vienna Stock Exchange provides all information of relevance for the index such as the index rules, composition, watch lists, changes and data vendor symbols on its index portal www.indices.cc.
