Solactive Ecommerce Logistics Index
The Index aims to track the performance of a basket of stocks of logistics service providers and technology companies who are engaged in ecommerce.
The Index is comprised of companies which are publically traded on various stock exchanges around the world that provide (i) “logistics” services (i.e. the warehousing of goods or the fulfilment and delivery of goods) or (ii) software solutions to companies that provide logistic services in connection with “ecommerce” (i.e. the buying and selling of goods on the internet). A company is only eligible for inclusion in the Index if (1) it is of a sufficient size (determined by reference to the total market value of the proportion of its shares that are publically traded) and (2) it is sufficiently “liquid” (a measure of how actively its shares are traded on a daily basis).
The universe of companies out of which the Index selection is made is refreshed annually in April. However, the Index is reconstituted semi-annually in April and October in accordance with the full selection criteria and all companies are equally weighted within the Index. On a monthly basis, the weight of each company is assessed and, if any of them exceeds 15% of the Index, the weights of all companies are adjusted so that they are again equally weighted within the Index.
