Methodology Change | Solactive Green Bond Index | Effective Date 1st November 2018

Today, on 31st October 2018, Solactive announces the following changes to the methodology of its Solactive Green Bond Index:

To clarify the bond selection approach, the Index Committee of Solactive has taken the decision to amend the selection criteria of the Solactive Green Bond Index. The amendment will be implemented by adjusting point (d) of Section 4.1 Index-specific definitions of the index guideline, which currently states that ‘municipal bonds’ are excluded from the Selection Pool, to specify that only ‘US municipal bonds’ are ineligible for the index.

The change of the index guideline becomes effective on 1st November 2018. The amended index guideline is available on www.solactive.com.
