Market Consultation

Market Consultation on the Methodology Change of the SOLACTIVE CANADIAN HIGH DIVIDEND YIELD INDEX | February 2019

Solactive AG has decided to conduct a Market Consultation with regard to the change of the industry group classification in the SOLACTIVE CANADIAN HIGH DIVIDEND YIELD INDEX Methodology.


The even distribution of the index components across the three industrial groups (Energy, Finance and Diversified), which is one of the measures taken to achieve the index’s objective, could no longer be implemented because of the reclassification of individual companies by Factset. The changes proposed below are intended to restore the original measure with regard to the avoidance of concentration risks.

Details about the methodology change can be found in the documents linked to this consultation.

Stakeholders and third parties who are interested in participating in this Market Consultation, are invited to respond until 15 February 2019.
