UCITS Capped Indexes are market-capitalization weighted indexes designed to limit concentration in any single security as part of the Undertakings for Collective Investment of Transferable Securities (UCITS ) diversification requirements for European Union registered funds. Single or two-level capping approaches are available to limit the weight of companies. Buffers are utilized to ensure that the constituents do not breach the desired targets.
The indexes Brazil, China, India, Korea – 30/18 represent the performance of large and mid-capitalization stocks in the individual country. To limit over-concentration in any single security, constituents of the respective indexes are capped quarterly so that the largest company’s weight does not exceed 30% and any remaining company weight does not exceed 18%
