What is an index fund?
An index fund is an equity fund that is suitable for those who prefer to keep costs low and have a savings time frame of more than six years. You can usually choose between two different types of mutual funds, index funds or active mutual funds. One type of equity fund is called an index fund.
The index fund should just follow the growth of a stock market index, not try to beat it. Such funds are therefore cheaper to operate than actively managed funds. This benefits you as a customer by making the management fee significantly lower. Low costs can be positive for the return you get on your savings in the long-term perspective.
Different types of equity fund (in Norwegian only)
An equity fund can be actively or passively managed
A mutual fund can be managed according to different guidelines. The main categories are active and passive management (index-based management).
Active management means that the fund manager selects a different composition of securities in the mutual fund than the composition of the fund’s benchmark index in order to try to generate better returns.
Passive management means that the fund’s portfolio has only minor deviations from the benchmark index it follows. Since the index fund, among other things, does not have managers trying to generate better returns than the index, the costs are lower than for actively managed funds.
Who are index funds suitable for?
Index funds are suitable for those who are concerned with low costs. The value of an equity fund may go up and down and must therefore be able to tolerate fluctuations in the value of your savings.

EU classification of mutual funds and sustainability in our advisory services
SFDR is the regulation in the EU action plan for sustainable finance. SFDR ensures that financial institutions publish their financial products’ investment strategy, investment objectives and actual investments.
Historical returns are no guarantee of future returns. Future returns will depend, among other things, on market movements, the skill of the Portfolio Manager, the fund’s risk level, as well as administration costs. The return may also be negative as a result of mark-to-market losses.
