Wirecard AG to be included in DAX
Wirecard will be included in the DAX and Deutsche Börse applies new index rules.
This scheduled review of the selection indices of Deutsche Börse marks the first application of the new rules.
The separation of the Tech and Classic segments was eliminated in this context. DAX companies that are assigned to technology sectors can now also be included in the TecDAX index, and TecDAX constituents can be listed in MDAX or SDAX.
Moreover, MDAX was enlarged to 60 constituents and SDAX to 70. TecDAX continues to consist of 30 constituents.
As of 31 August, the new Guide to the Equity Indices of Deutsche Börse AG applies. It lays out the new rules in detail.
Going forward, TecDAX will continue to include 30 constituents, which have a focus on technology. Three companies are new in TecDAX, three will be deleted.
MDAX will include the 60 companies below DAX that are the largest and have the highest order book turnover. 15 companies will be newly included in MDAX, five will be deleted.
SDAX will include the 70 largest and most-traded companies below MDAX. 24 companies will be newly included in SDAX, four will be deleted.
The next scheduled review of the equity indices of Deutsche Börse AG will take place on 5 December 2018.
