The investment objective of the ComStage 1 SDAX UCITS ETF is to provide investors with a return that tracks the performance of the SDAX TR (Total Return) Index. The SDAX Index is the selection index for 50 smaller companies (small caps) from traditional sectors, including the media, chemical and transport industries as well as industrial and financial services, that follow the companies included in the MDAX in terms of market capitalization and order book turnover. For inclusion in the SDAX only those companies will be considered that are listed in the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, traded continuously on Xetra and show a free float portion of at least 10 percent. Moreover, companies must either have their headquarters in Germany or, if they have a major share of the stock exchange turnover in Germany, in the European Union or in an EFTA state. The selection of the index components takes place based on inter alia order book turnover andfree-float market capitalisation, with an upper weighting limit of 10% for each share.
