Benchmark index of Evli European High Yield Fund to change

31.08.2015

Evli Fund Management Company Ltd has decided to change the benchmark index of the Evli European High Yield Fund. The fund’s new benchmark index is the BofA Merrill Lynch European Currency Developed Markets High Yield Constrained Index. The index is being changed because of recent modifications in the composition of the current index, and as a result the index now also includes bonds of companies that operate on the emerging markets (e.g. Gazprom, Petrobras). The new index consists only of western companies’ bonds, and therefore it corresponds to the fund’s original investment strategy.

The new benchmark index will be adopted on September 30, 2015.
