The VINX Benchmark index (VINXB) consists of a selection of the largest and most traded stocks, with representation from a majority of the Industries. The weight of each constituent is based on a free float market capitalization, which means that only the part of the share capital that is considered to be available for trading is included in the index. The index serves as an indicator of the overall performance on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchanges and Oslo Börs and is intended to be a cost efficient index that an investor can fully replicate. VINXB is revised twice a year to ensure that it offers high investability with low transaction costs. Thus VINXB index is especially attractive for use in investment products and as a comparative index for investors. The index is available in the currencies DKK, EUR, ISK, NOK and SEK as well in price- (PI), gross- (GI) and net (NI) versions. VINXB is also available as a weight limited version called VINXBCAP. The weight limitation (capping) ensures that the index is compliant according to UCITS.
