In today's globalised economies, company revenues and assets are no longer primarily derived from the country of origin (where a company is incorporated) or from just one business sector. The unique MVIS pure-play concept reflects this development and responds to changing economic landscapes. It also opens up markets that are traditionally difficult to access.
Pure-Play Exposure on a Country or Regional Level
Local exposure is expanded to include non-local companies that generate at least 50% of their revenues (or, where applicable, assets) in the target country or region.
Pure-Play Exposure on a Sector Level
To achieve pure sector exposure, companies included in a MVIS® sector index must generate at least 50% of their revenues (or, where applicable, assets) from the target sector.

The table above illustrates an example of the pure-play concept applied on a country and sector level, i.e. for the MVIS® Mexico Index (Fresnillo plc) and the MVIS® Global Coal Index (Aurizon Holdings Ltd.).
Fresnillo plc as a non-local component meets the pure-play requirements as well as all other selection as defined in the MVIS® Global Equity Index Guide, and is selected for the MVIS® Mexico Index.
Aurizon Holdings Ltd. also fulfills the pure-play rule and all other rules in the index selection process and is selected for the MVIS® Global Coal Index.
