Shop Apotheke Europe and Wacker Chemie to be included in MDAX

FRANKFURT, September 3, 2020 – On Thursday, Qontigo’s global index provider STOXX Ltd. announced changes to the DAX index family, which will become effective on 21 September 2020.

The shares of Shop Apotheke Europe N.V will be included in the MDAX index and will replace the shares of RTL Group. The shares of Wacker Chemie AG will also be included in MDAX and will replace the shares of Aareal Bank AG. In both cases the basis is the regular exit rule.
