MVIS Brazil Small-Cap Index

The modified market cap-weighted index tracks the performance of the most liquid small-cap companies in Brazil. Its unique pure-play approach expands local exposure to include non-local companies that generate at least 50% of their revenues in Brazil. The MVIS Brazil Small-Cap Index (MVBRF) covers 100% of the investable universe and has been licensed to underlie financial products with currently USD 90.86 million in assets under management.

Country Weightings

The white area of the table shows the number of companies incorporated in a certain country and the country's weight in the index.
Countries marked with (*) are the home of non-local companies. Non-local companies are companies, incorporated in these countries, that generate at least 50% of their revenues in the index target.

The number of non-local companies is declared in column «non-local». The count of components and weights in the grey area is achieved by reassigning the non-local companies to the country or region covered by the index.
