Xact Kapitalförvaltning is amending the fund rules of XACT NORDEN 30 (UCITS ETF). The fund will continue to invest in the about 30 most- traded equities listed on the Nordic exchanges, but will be switching to an index that also contains specific sustainability requirements for those companies included in the index. As a result of the requirements, companies with high sustainability ratings will be included (inclusion) in the index, while companies involved in verified violations of international norms and companies operating within controversial sectors will not be included (exclusion). This does not involve any substantial change to the fund’s investment focus or risk level.

In connection with the index switch, the fund’s name will be changed to XACT NORDEN (UCITS ETF).

For detailed information, please refer to the information brochure and the fund’s new sustainability profile, which will be made available at www.handelsbanken.se/funds and xact.se in conjunction with the change.
