iSTOXX Global Cities of Tomorrow Select 30

Index Description

The iSTOXX Global Cities of Tomorrow Select 30 Index tracks the performance of 30 liquid stocks with low volatility and high dividend yield. The components are selected from a pool of companies that are addressing the needs of the cities and citizens of the future. These companies provide a diverse set of solutions, for which demand is constantly increasing as it is driven by growing urban population, limited natural resources and increasing focus on environmental sustainability. Moreover, eligible companies are screened by ESG scores to result in a selection of leaders with regards to environmental, social and governance criteria. Industry, region and country neutrality filters are applied in the selection process to ensure diversification. Companies that are in contravention of the Global Standards Screening or are involved in Controversial Weapons activities, as identified by Sustainalytics, are excluded. Additionally, companies involved in Weapons (Small Arms and Military Contracting), Gambling, Adult Entertainment, Unconventional Oil & Gas (Arctic Oil and Gas Exploration, Oil Sands and Shale Energy), Conventional Oil & Gas, Thermal Coal, Nuclear Power, Tobacco, Aerospace and Defense are also excluded. Revere (RBICS) data allow a detailed breakdown of the revenue sources of the eligible companies, helping this index to select companies with substantial exposure to the 'sustainable smart city' megatrend.

Methodology

The parent index is the STOXX Developed and Emerging Markets Total Market Index. First, stocks that rank in the top half of the universe in terms of ESG scores are selected. From those, companies with revenue exposure above 25% to the sectors associated with the sustainable smart cities megatrend are selected. Additional filters are applied to ensure companies engaged in controversial activities, or non-compliant with the Global Standards Screening, are excluded. The eligible companies are ranked based on their volatility; the top 50% of companies with the lowest volatility proceed to the next step. All remaining companies are ranked based on their dividend yield; the 30 companies with the highest yields are selected such that country, region and industry diversification constraints are met.

The index is weighted by the inverse of the selected stocks' volatility; component weight is capped at 10%. The index composition is reviewed quarterly.
