Index methodology

The STOXX World AC* All Cap Index aims to provide a broad universe that includes all investable stocks, ADRs and GDRs from all developed and emerging markets worldwide.

Large and mid-cap versions cover approximately 70% and 85% respectively of float-adjusted market capitalization. Numerous derived indices can be created by filtering the STOXX World AC All Cap Index components on geographic region/country, capital markets (developed or emerging), size (large, mid or small), and/or sector. The component weights of the derived indices are market cap weighted unless specified otherwise.

* AC stands for All Countries
