All index components are selected based on their overall MarketGrader grade. Built on a scale between zero and 100, our overall grade is based on 24 fundamental indicators, or factors, which are divided into four categories, with six indicators each: Growth, Value, Profitability and Cash Flow. All of our indicators and our overall company grades are calculated daily for all companies under coverage.

Equal Weighting
All index constituents are equally weighted every time the index is rebalanced. No weight modifications or adjustments are made to the index between rebalance periods.

All index constituents must have a minimum total market cap of USD $100 million, a minimum 3-month daily traded value of USD $2 million and at least USD $50 million in aggregate trading volume in the trailing 12 months immediately before the index selection date. At least 25% of all index components (20 companies) must have a float-adjusted market cap that falls in the top market cap quartile of all companies listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

No more than 20% of index constituents (16 companies) may belong to the same economic sector, based on MarketGrader’s Global Sector Classification.

Rebalance Discipline
The index is rebalanced twice a year, on the third Friday of March and September.


The MarketGrader Shenzhen 80 Index seeks to follow the most fundamentally sound companies with the best growth prospects in Mainland China that are listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

Since the index is equally weighted, it gives each company an equal opportunity to contribute to its overall performance regardless of size, sector, business model or affiliation with the state.
