In today's globalised economies, company revenues and assets are no longer primarily derived from the country of origin (where a company is incorporated) or from just one business sector. The unique MVIS pure-play concept reflects this development and responds to changing economic landscapes. It also opens up markets that are traditionally difficult to access.

Pure-Play Exposure on a Country or Regional Level

Local exposure is expanded to include non-local companies that generate at least 50% of their revenues (or, where applicable, assets) in the target country or region.

Pure-Play Exposure on a Sector Level

To achieve pure sector exposure, companies included in a MVIS sector index must generate at least 50% of their revenues (or, where applicable, assets) from the target sector.
