MVIS Global Rare Earth/Strategic Metals Index

The modified market cap-weighted index tracks the performance of the largest and most liquid companies in the global rare earth and strategic metals segment. Its unique pure-play approach requires that companies have to generate at least 50% of their revenues from rare earth and strategic metals or with mining projects that have the potential to generate at least 50% of their revenues from rare earth/strategic metal when developed. The index includes refiners, recyclers and producers of rare earth strategic metals and minerals. The MVIS Global Rare Earth/Strategic Metals Index (MVREMX) covers at least 90% of the investable universe and has been licensed to underlie financial products with currently USD 168.66 million in asset under management.
