ABN AMRO : ABN AMRO Launches Open-Ended Oil and Metal Certificates in Sweden.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- ABN AMRO today launched new Open-Ended certificates on oil and the most popular precious and base metals - gold, silver, copper and zinc - for the first time ever on the Nordic market. The certificates are structured products with no fixed maturity (open- ended) and will be tradable on the stock exchange.

"ABN AMRO is well known for its commodities trading and has extensive expertise in the oil and metal markets all over the world. Our unique combination of global knowledge and local intimacy enables us to provide cutting edge products to address the strong interest in commodities among Swedish investors", said Niklas Eakerfelt, Head of Nordic Distribution, responsible for the structured products range.

"Oil and mining stocks have long been popular among Swedish investors, but now investors can invest directly into the different commodities in a very easy and transparent way", Eakerfelt said.

The certificates give investors exposure to commodity price changes. Because commodity prices generally reflect inflation, investing in that asset class provides direct protection against inflation risk.

This is ABN AMRO's second innovative offering of certificates in the Swedish market. Biofuel, clean renewable energy and water certificates were launched on November 1.

Retail investors can buy ABN AMRO certificates via their current deposit accounts. ABN AMRO is the market maker, guaranteeing continuous liquidity. More information can be found on
