ETF tracks the Refinitiv Satrix South Africa Inclusion & Diversity Index. This index only comprises stocks listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. The index identifies JSE companies that meet a specific set of economic, social and governance criteria. The index then measures those companies against four pillars: diversity; inclusion; people development; and news & controversies. Together the pillars incorporate 25 factors that each support a diverse and inclusive environment.
Each company is assigned a score for each of the four pillars. Companies with a positive score on each of the four pillars are assigned an overall score, which is simply the average of the pillar scores. They are then ranked based on their overall score in descending order, and the top 30 are included in the index. The 30 resultant companies are subsequently weighted according to their free float market capitalisation and adjusted for liquidity. Following this, they are capped at 10%. A sectoral cap of 30% is also applied.
