Notice to Users of Assofond Indicators: Suspension with effect from 1 July 2024

The Antitrust Authority, in the context of the investigation of the pending I866-Foundries case, has informally expressed its concerns as to the lawfulness of certain Indexes published by Assofond.
Since Assofond makes compliance with antitrust regulations a priority, as a matter of extreme caution and without any admission of liability, we hereby inform you that some Indexes will be suspended and others modified as of 1 July 2024, pending the conclusion of the aforementioned proceedings.
We remain at your disposal for any clarification on the above.
