Stockholm Stock Exchange and Helsinki Stock Exchange are to change the names of their OMX and HEX25 indexes from Monday 15 November 2004.
The new name of the OMX index will be OMXS30, with the letter S standing for Stockholm. The HEX25 index’s new name will be OMXH25, with the letter H standing for Helsinki. The figures designate the number of shares included in the tradable index.
OMX says the introduction of a joint index family is part of its aim to create an integrated Nordic and Baltic market.
