Methodology highlights

  • Quarterly rebalancing
  • Stocks chosen from a Liquid Universe determined by trading volumes and market capitalization
  • Starting universe is the EMIX Global Mining Index (EGMI). Rebalancing of EGMI occurs as follows:

    1. Existing EGMI stocks ranked by market capitalization, market capitalization representing the 99.75th percentile is obtained
    2. The market value found in step 1 is rounded to nearest USD50MM (the Threshold Value)
    3. Companies with market caps at least 20% higher than the Threshold Value that are not already EGMI constituents are added to the index
    4. Companies with market caps less than 20% lower than the Threshold Value that are EGMI constituents are removed from the index
    5. Companies no longer eligible for EGMI are removed from the index

 

  • Following the rebalancing of the EGMI Index, the Methodology for EMIX Constrained Weights Indices is then applied. In short, the constraining process follows a trial-and-error process to ensure the following two entity weight conditions are met:
    • no more than 9% weight in any one entity
    • there is no more than 4.5% weight in any one entity unless the sum of such entities does not exceed a 36% weight
