The STOXX Global Next Generation Telecoms Index is comprised of companies that stand to benefit from the continuous technological advancement in the telecommunication industry. The companies in this index are generating revenue by providing the infrastructure required for the setup of 5G, such as wireless communication providers, manufacturers of networking equipment, device and semiconductor manufacturers. The increasing popularity of Internet of Things, the evolution of large urban centers into sustainable smart cities that can cater to the needs of the citizens of the future, consumer demand for better and faster video streaming, augmented and virtual reality applications, are putting the companies mentioned above on the path of accelerated growth.
Revere (RBICS) data allow a detailed breakdown of the revenue sources of the eligible companies, helping this index to select companies with substantial exposure to the next generations trend. Furthermore, the index excludes companies that Sustainalytics considers to be in breach of UN Global Compact principles or to be involved with controversial weapons.
