Revenue-based Thematic Indices

Classical selection approach

The STOXX revenue-based thematic indices use the FactSet Revere Business Industry Classification System (RBICS) data set, whose unique content sets provide a dynamic industry taxonomy. The highly granular and accurate sector and industry classification (up to 1,500 distinct sub-industries identified) allows a detailed breakdown of companies’ revenue sources, helping to identify and select businesses with substantial exposure to specific themes.

Key benefits
