Both additions to the MVIS Global Junior Gold Miners Index were companies that fulfilled the liquidity requirements for the investable index universe this quarter. Conversely, the only deletion to the Index was due to that company not fulfilling the liquidity requirements.

The MVIS Australia Small-Cap Dividend Payers Index had the highest turnover this quarter. Most of the additions fulfilled the liquidity requirements for the investable index universe this quarter. The Index is comprised of local and non-local Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) listed companies that paid their latest dividend payment. Most of the deletions to the Index were companies that failed to pay their dividends.

With three additions and four deletions, the MVIS US Mortgage REITs Index had the highest turnover within the hard assets and sector indices. All four deletions were companies that were too small and fell out of the selection range for existing components; all three additions fulfilled the requirements for the investable index universe and were added to satisfy target coverage.

A complete list of components and weights is available on www.mvis-indices.com. Index methodology, comprehensive index information as well as information about financial products based on MVIS Indices can also be found on our website. The next quarterly review results will be announced on 11 September 2020.
