MVIS® South Korea Equal Weight Index

The MVIS® South Korea Equal Weight Index (MVKREQ) tracks the performance of the largest and most liquid companies incorporated in South Korea, employing an equal weighting scheme. The index also includes non-local companies incorporated outside South Korea that generate at least 50% of their revenues in South Korea. MVKREQ covers at least 70% 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.
