MarketVectorTM Indexes are investable indexes, tailor-made for exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The index concept is built on three key factors: liquidity, pure-play exposure and diversification which, in combination, ensure the creation of investable index tools, particularly suited to underlie ETFs.
Demanding liquidity criteria are applied when potential index companies are screened.
