Methodology

The iSTOXX MUTB ESG Quality 200 Indices aim to capture the performance of high-quality ESG-compliant companies from their respective parent universe. First, companies non-compliant based on Sustanalitics Global Standards Screening Assessment or involved in Controversial Weapons are excluded. Companies are then selected based on a combined screening and ranking of ESG scores and four fundamental indicators (profitability, leverage, cash flow generation ability and business stability). Stocks need to fulfill minimum liquidity criteria before being added to the index.

The constituents are weighted according to free-float market capitalization with a cap at 2%. The indices are reviewed semi-annually in June and December and rebalanced quarterly.

The detailed methodology including the calculation formula can be found in our rulebooks: www.stoxx.com/rulebooks
