Nikkei 225 Total Return Net Index
The Reference Index is designed to reflect the performance of 225 liquid market representative stocks from the Tokyo Stock Exchange First Section.
The 225 constituent stocks are reviewed periodically by the liquidity in the market and sector balance to maintain long-term continuity of the Reference Index, while also reflecting changes in the industry structure.
The liquidity assessment involves stocks being ranked by both trading volume of the preceding 5 years, and the magnitude of price fluctuations by volume in the preceding 5 years.
As measured by this ranking, the top 75 stocks are added to the Reference Index, while any security ranked 451 or lower is deleted. The top 450 stocks are then categorised into six industrial sectors – Technology, Financials, Consumer Goods, Industrial Materials, Capital Goods/Others and Transportation/Utilities.
