ROBO Global Robotics and Automation UCITS Index

Index description

ROBO Global Robotics and Automation UCITS Index TR USD

The Index aims to track the performance of a basket of stocks of companies that are actively engaged in robotics and automation related activities.

The Index is comprised of companies which are publicly traded on various stock exchanges around the world that generate a material proportion of their revenues from the robotics and automation industry. The industry is deemed to be comprised of the following two subsectors: (1) Technology, which includes sensing, processing, computing and artificial intelligence, actuation, and integration; and (2) Applications, which includes manufacturing and industrial automation, 3D printing, logistics automation, food and agriculture, surveillance and security, energy, healthcare and consumer products.

A company is only eligible for inclusion in the Index if it is of a sufficient size (determined by reference to the total market value of its shares) and it is sufficiently "liquid" (a measure of how actively its shares are traded on a daily basis). Within the Index, companies are weighted according to a modified ROBO-factor weighting scheme. The Index is rebalanced quarterly in March, June, September and December.
