The Vienna Stock Exchange launches four sector indices for Russia: RTX Mining & Metals Index (RTX MET), RTX Energy Index (RTX NRG), RTX Oil & Gas Index (RTX OIL) and RTX Telecom Index (RTX TEL).

All four indices are capitalization-weighted price indices. They include the most actively traded stocks with the highest market capitalization listed on the MICEX (Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange).

The four indices will be calculated and published in real time by Wiener Brse AG in EUR, USD and RUB. These indices have been designed as tradable indices that can be used as underlyings for structured products and for standardized derivatives (futures and options). The starting value of the four new sector indices was defined at 1,000 index points on 11 January 2009.

With the launch of these four indices, the Vienna Stock Exchange has widened its range of products for the CIS region to 11 indices thereby responding to the catching-up potential attributed to this region.
