  • The index specifically targets companies that are engaged in large civil and capital projects such as infrastructure, utilities, transportation, telecommunications, commercial, residential, and commerce facilities and whose roles are within the engineering, designing, planning, consulting, project managing, and/or constructing of these projects.To be included in the index, a company must receive at least 70% of revenues from these types of services and projects based on the reportable segment/division from its most recent annual report.
  • The companies must meet market capitalization and weighting concentration requirements for inclusion in the index.
  • The index uses a linear-based capitalization-weighted methodology for the group of companies.The resulting linear weight distribution prevents a few large component stocks from dominating the index while allowing smaller companies to adequately influence index performance.
  • Index components are reviewed semi-annually for eligibility, and the weights are re-set according to that distribution.
