FRANKFURT, Germany (April 5, 2024) — MarketVector IndexesTM ("MarketVector") launches the BlueStar® Top 10 US Listed Fabless Semiconductor Index (BFABL).

It is a thematic index tracking the performance of companies specialized in the semiconductor industry and operating as fabless semiconductor companies. A fabless semiconductor company is engaged in the design and sale of semiconductors and hardware while outsourcing all product manufacturing. As such, companies that own and operate manufacturing facilities or foundries are excluded. Furthermore, the index does not include companies engaged in the production of equipment used in the manufacturing of semiconductors.

It is reviewed on a semi-annual basis and calculated in USD as a price index and a total return net index.

Detailed information about the index, including methodology details and index data, is available on the MarketVector website.
