And for the primary time, the annual overview of the benchmark index will happen on September 29, relatively than the tip of July.

The primary annual overview of the benchmark index can generally end in important modifications. For instance, the 2018 annual benchmark implied that first-quarter GDP was 0.4 proportion factors larger than initially reported.
