The Index selects companies from 26 eligible countries within emerging markets whose primary business is internet retail, payment processing, software for internet and E-Commerce transactions, among others.

This index is aimed at investors looking to gain access to the growing role of internet technology and e-commerce in emerging markets. The index invests in technology-related shares selected based on specific liquidity and market capitalization requirements. As of October 13, 2017, 58% of the index was composed of companies operating in industries such as Internet and Data Services, Software, and General Merchandise Retail.

Timo Pfeiffer, Head of Research at Solactive, commented: “The market for consumer technology has experienced significant success on a global level, with considerable growth coming from emerging markets due to increasing purchasing power in these regions. The Solactive Emerging Markets Consumer Technology Index allows investors to take advantage of these developing trends, while limiting exposure to individual companies.”

Brendan Ahern, Chief Investment Officer at KraneShares, said: “We are very pleased to partner with Solactive to deliver the index for our KraneShares Emerging Markets Consumer Technology ETF (Ticker KEMQ). The index development team was extraordinarily flexible in designing the index to match our views on the emerging markets consumer technology sector. For those investors interested in learning more about the KEMQ ETF and the corresponding Solactive index, we will be hosting a live webinar on Wednesday November 1st at 11:00am EST. Click here to register.”

The index is calculated as Gross Total Return Index and is denominated in USD. The most represented countries are China, South Korea and Brazil. Securities are not eligible if traded in China and can be represented by their ADR or listed in foreign exchanges. Stocks listed in the US represent over 50% of the index as of October 13, 2017. As per this same date, the five shares with the largest weight in the index are ZTE Corporation, Baidu Inc, Naspers Ltd (ADR), Tencent Holdings Limited, and Naver Corporation. Components are ranked according to market capitalization and divided into 3 tiers, inside which each name is equally weighted.
