MVIS® United Kingdom Equal Weight Index

The MVIS® United Kingdom Equal Weight Index (MVGBEQ) index tracks the performance of the largest and most liquid companies incorporated in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, employing an equal weighting scheme. The index also includes non-local companies incorporated outside the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland that generate at least 50% of their revenues in the United Kingdom. MVGBEQ covers at least 80% 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.
