MVIS Australia Index (AUD)

The modified market cap-weighted index tracks the performance of the largest and most liquid companies incorporated in Australia and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). Its unique pure-play approach expands local exposure to include non-local companies, incorporated outside Australia but with a listing on the ASX, that generate at least 50% of their revenues in Australia. The MVIS Australia Index (AUD) (MVAUS) covers at least 90% of the investable universe and is calculated in local currency.

Country Weightings

The white area of the table shows the number of companies incorporated in a certain country and the country's weight in the index.
Countries marked with (*) are the home of non-local companies. Non-local companies are companies, incorporated in these countries, that generate at least 50% of their revenues in the index target.

The number of non-local companies is declared in column «non-local». The count of components and weights in the grey area is achieved by reassigning the non-local companies to the country or region covered by the index.
