The index seeks to provide systematic exposure to US and non-US companies in the music, media and entertainment industry as well as select sectors in the streaming content ecosystem. Companies comprising the QUINCY100™ have been identified by sector selections within the FactSet Revere Business and Industry Classification System (RBICS). RBICS is a comprehensive, structured taxonomy designed to offer precise sector classifications of global publicly listsed companies. Constituents have a Share Class Market Capitalization of at least USD $1 Billion and an Average Daily Traded Value of at least USD $5 Million over the previous 6 months. A maximum of 100 companies with the highest Share Class Market Capitalization are included. The index rebalances semi-annually. See index methodology book for more information.
The QUINCY100™ was engineered to reflect the long-term growth in streaming content and disruption in the content delivery ecosystem. Thanks to streaming, we’re witnessing a revolution in the music, media and entertainment industry globally; therefore, the index was engineered to be inclusive to allow it to benefit from further disruption.
Data is from the July 2017 Adjustment Date, see Methodology Book for more details.
Dates: July 2007 - October 2017
Cumulative is the aggregate amount that the index has gained or lost over time. Annualized is the average gained or lost each year over a given time period. TR is Total Return which means the index measures performance assuming that all cash distributions are reinvested, in addition to tracking price movements. Backtested performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
Dates: July 2007 - October 2017
Index returns shown prior to October 2017 reflect back-tested performance, which is NOT actual performance, but is hypothetical. The back-tested return calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect when the index was officially launched. However, back-tested returns reflect the application of the index methodology with the benefit of hindsight, and the index was developed with the benefit of knowing what such back-tested returns would show. The results of such back-tested returns were used to further the development of the index to maximize the back-tested returns for the index. Index returns shown may not represent the results of the actual trading of investable assets because the index returns do not reflect the fees and expenses that would have been incurred in such trading. Additionally, the back-tested index returns assume that the index was fully invested (i.e., no cash was included). You cannot invest in an index. Actual results may significantly differ from the back-tested returns being presented, and back-tested performance is not an indication of future results. This information is provided for illustrative purposes only.
Data is from the July 2017 Adjustment Day. The QUINCY100™ rebalances semi-annually on the Adjustment Day which is 5 Business Days following the Selection Day on the last Business Day in January and July. Please see the Methodology Book for more information.
