The Market Vectors Global Spin-Off ETF seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the Horizon Kinetics Global Spin-Off Index.
The Horizon Kinetics Global Spin-Off Index is a rules-based, equal-weighted index intended to track the performance of listed, publicly-held spin-offs that are domiciled and trade in the U.S. or developed markets of Western Europe and Asia.
To be considered a spin-off company, the initial distribution of a component security must have been distributed to shareholders of the parent company without any action having to be taken by the parent company shareholders. Additionally, the parent company must have distributed at least 80% of the component security to shareholders of the parent company, and shares of the component security must not have been publicly traded prior to the distribution. Such companies may include small- and medium capitalization companies, foreign issuers and real estate investment trusts (REITs).
As of March 31, 2015, the Index included 87 securities of companies with a market capitalization range of approximately $493 million to $93 billion and a weighted average market capitalization of $5.8 billion.
