Methodology highlights

  • All stocks in the investable universe are sorted in terms of free-float market capitalisation in descending order.
  • Stocks covering the top 85% of the free-float market capitalisation of the investable universe qualify for selection.
  • Existing components between the 85th and 98th percentiles also qualify for the Index.
  • If the coverage is still below 90% or the number of components in the Index is still below 20, the largest remaining stocks will be selected until coverage of at least 90% is reached and the number of stocks equals 20.
  • In case the number of eligible companies is below 20, additional companies are added by the Index Owner’s decision until the number of sticks equals 20.

 

For all corporate events that result in a stock deletion from the Index, the deleted stock will be replaced with the highest ranked non-component on the most recent selection list immediately only if the number of components in the Index would drop below 20. The replacement stock will be added at the same weight as the deleted stock. Only in case the number of components drops below its minimum due to a merger of two or more index components, the replacement stock will be added with its uncapped free-float market capitalisation weight. In all other cases, i.e. there is no replacement, the additional weight resulting from the deletion will be redistributed proportionally across all other index constituents.

 

The Index employs a capping scheme to ensure diversification. All companies are ranked by their free-float market capitalisation. The maximum weight for any single stock is 8%.

 

If a stock exceeds the maximum weight, then the weight will be reduced to the maximum weight and the excess weight shall be redistributed proportionally across all other Index constituents.

 

This process is repeated until no stocks have weights exceeding the respective maximum weight.
