            NASDAQ OMX exchanges in Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen will introduce new segments for Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) to enhance NASDAQ OMX Nordic structured product offering.


            The current market segments for structured products are “Fund units”, “Warrants” and “Certificates”. Part of the instruments on the current Certificates segments are today perceived as Exchange Traded Notes. Therefore, new Exchange Traded Notes segments will be created and those instruments classified as ETNs will be transferred to the new segments. Certificates segments with certificate instruments remain in INET system.

            ETN definition

            An ETN is a debt obligation, note, issued by a bank. The ETN is similar to ETFs in their construction however the ETN are more flexible in how the assets are allocated, compared to a fund. An ETN mirrors the return of assets such as stocks, bonds, futures, commodities, currencies or similar products, or combinations thereof, and which may or may not try to replicate an index. They are open-ended or with maturities exceeding 5y and with a symmetric return. They are cash settled at expiration.

            INET identifiers

            Instrument Type and Instrument Subtype ETNs use Instrument Type Warrants and subtype Certificates in INET Nordic system.

            For Stockholm and Helsinki Exchange Traded Notes segments, existing segment numbers 158 and 157 will be used and renamed. For Copenhagen, a new segment will be created.
