These and other changes, to be developed in partnership with the market, are aimed at making use of Moscow Exchange"s indexes more convenient for investment funds and asset managers in their financial products.

Moscow Exchange plans to complete all changes (including changes to the calculation methodology for the Exchange"s indexes and exchange policies) in the fourth quarter 2017.

At this time the name of the RTS Index will remain unchanged.
