New index launched on the Ljubljana Stock Exchange

Ljubljana, 03 May (STA) - A new index will be introduced on the Ljubljana Stock Exchange (LJSE) on Monday. The Slovenian Total Return Blue Chip Index, SBITOPT, will include share prices as well as confirmed dividends and just like the SBI TOP, it will measure the profitability of the most liquid Slovenian shares.

The new index is a next step in the stock exchange's efforts to offer more valuable data to investors and to make their investment decisions easier, the LJSE says on its web site.

It is aimed at providing an underlying for derivatives and structured financial instruments on the Slovenian capital market.

The SBI TOP is the benchmark index of blue chips traded on the LJSE. In June 2019, it was joined by the Adria Prime (ADRPR) index.
