Oslo Stock Exchange Index

The index family of the Oslo Stock Exchange consists of the following indexes:

  • the OBX
  • the Total Index
  • sector indexes, viz. a bank index, an insurance index, a shipping index, and an industry index which includes companies that are listed in the group "industry, trade, and finance".
Companies in which the Norwegian state holds a long term position are weighted only with the portion of the company's market capitalization that is freely transferable. The OBX is based on the 25 most frequently traded shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange in the 6 months prior to the biannual index revision on June 1 and December 1.

It is noteworthy that while the OBX is not adjusted for dividend payments, the Total Index and the sector indexes are.
