STOXX Europe 600 Optimised Energy

Index Description

The STOXX Europe 600 Optimised Supersector Indices are derived from the STOXX Europe 600 Index, which comprises 600 of the largest European stocks by free-float market cap. Index components are selected by equity turnover value (three-month average daily turnover value - 3-month ADTV) and availability to borrow (based on the average data over seven trading days, as provided by data explorers in EUR). The EURO STOXX Optimised Banks is derived from the STOXX Europe 600 Optimised Banks Index and covers Eurozone companies.

Key facts

  • Indices which use liquidity and stock borrowing as explicit factors in constituent selection to ensure tradability for long and short positions. Filters based on liquidity and availability to borrow are applied at the supersector level.
  • A sector-dependent liquidity factor reduces the weighting of those components whose average daily turnover, as a fraction of the free-float market cap, is above the supersector average. This liquidity weighting methodology enhances the tradability of each index while retaining the free-float market cap weighting across the larger, more liquid stocks.
  • Single stock weighting caps produce hedging tools that reduce idiosyncratic single-stock exposures, decrease volatility and improve diversification. These percentage weighting caps are defined based on the number of index components to ensure relevance across a heterogeneous group of supersectors.

At least 10 stocks must remain in the relevant supersector

The combined free-float market cap of the excluded stocks from a particular supersector must not exceed 20%.
