MVIS® Japan Index

The MVIS® Japan Index (MVJAP) tracks the performance of the largest and most liquid companies in Japan. The index is a modified market cap-weighted index, and it also includes non-local companies incorporated outside Japan that generate at least 50% of their revenue in Japan. MVJAP covers at least 50% of the investable universe.

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.
