The index will measure stock performance of companies engaged in exploration or production of scarce, renewable commodities and will include a Shariah compliant sub-index.
Commodity sectors represented in the index include agriculture, energy, metals, precious metals and water. In addition to The Dow Jones Global Commodity Equity 100 Index, the series includes four sub-indexes. These include:
- Dow Jones Global Equity Agriculture Index;
- Dow Jones Global Equity Energy Index;
- Dow Jones Global Equity Scarcity Index, which defines “scarcity” as natural resources that can’t be replenished; and.
- Dow Jones Islamic Market Global Equity Commodity Index, which measures all companies in the parent index that pass the Shariah screens.
“As the world’s population climbs and emerging markets mature, the consumption of commodities -- many of which have finite supplies -- continues to increase,” said Michael A. Petronella, President, Dow Jones Indexes. “This development yields compelling market opportunities for investors looking to equities engaged in the business of commodities. With the Dow Jones Global Commodity Equity 100 Index series, investors can follow companies engaged in the business of commodities by utilizing a broad index or subsets focused on agriculture, energy or scarcity.”
