Underlying Index Bloomberg Ticker: FTCRTWRP Index.
The FTSE Taiwan RIC Capped Index adopts a capping methodology, where constituents are capped quarterly so that no more than 20% of the index's weight may be allocated to a single constituent and the sum of the weights of all constituents representing more than 4.5% of the index should not exceed 48% of the total index weight. As a result, the FTSE Taiwan RIC Capped Index is more diversified and less concentrated in top constituent Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). The FTSE Taiwan RIC Capped Index is highly correlated to both the MSCI Taiwan IndexSM and the Taiwan Capitalization Weighted Stock Index (TWSE).
