Since the rule change one year ago (Q2/2017), MVIS Global Junior Gold Miners Index had only two additions and one deletion (in total) in four reviews.
Monsanto (MON UN) was removed from the MVIS Global Agribusiness Index due to its acquisition during the recent quarter; it was the largest company in the index with a weight of 8.25% at the time of its removal. As a result, three components were added to the index in the Q2/2018 review. Such a number of additions occurred for the first time since the Q2/2017 review: at that time, five companies were added to this index, which was related to the removal of Syngenta (SYT UN) due to its acquisition.
Evraz (EVR LN) managed to be added to the MVIS Russia Index again after its removal in Q1/2017. With its addition to the index, Evraz is a component in both the MVIS Russia and the MVIS Global Steel Index.
