Frankfurt (24 June 2022) - MarketVector Indexes GmbH would like to inform you about an improvement to the methodology of the following indexes:

To avoid an index component exceeds 25% weight, MarketVector Indexes will adjust the weighting factor if the company 

  • Exceeds 22.5% weight in case of outperformance,
  • Is expected to exceed 22.5% weight after a corporate action (e.g. merger, deletion of other components).

The target weight of such adjustments is 20%. This target maximum weight will in this case be applied to any other company which exceeds 20% as well.

Details are announced in corporate action files.

This update will become effective on 24 July 2022, the index guide will be updated accordingly.

Kind regards,

MarketVector Indexes
