The aim of the Ashburton MidCap ETF is to provide returns linked to the performance of the FTSE/JSE MID CAP Index. The ETF invests in all the component equities of the Index in proportion to the Index weightings. The FTSE/JSE MID CAP index contains the largest 60 companies listed on the JSE that are not included in the FTSE/JSE Top40 Index in terms of market capitalisation. The ETF thus holds the 41st to the 100th largest companies on the JSE in terms of market capitalisation.
The Ashburton MidCap ETF pays a quarterly distribution to investors which is made up of any dividends or interest earned from the underlying shares.
