MVIS Egypt Index

The modified market cap-weighted index tracks the performance of the largest and most liquid companies in Egypt. Its unique pure-play approach expands local exposure to include non-local companies that generate at least 50% of their revenues in Egypt. The MVIS Egypt Index (MVEGPT) covers at least 90% of the investable universe and has been licensed to underlie financial products with currently USD 31.12 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.

Sector Weightings

The weighting of a certain sector in an index is based on the weightings of the index components allocated to this sector. The table below displays the number of index components by sectors.
The columns coloured in grey represent hypothetical values assuming that the index would not include non-local companies.
