The Vienna Stock Exchange calculates and publishes 147 indices, 108 of which reflect national, regional and sector developments in the Central Eastern and Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE & CIS) region. The calculation of the CEE & CIS indices is based on a quantitative methodology, which is defined in detail in an index set of rules. According to the "Guidelines for the CEE & CIS Indices of the Vienna Stock Exchange", companies may be included or excluded from the CEE & CIS indices as part of the semi-annual review and adjustment (March and September). The selection of index members is based on turnover and free float capitalisation. The calculation parameters (number of shares, free float factors and representation factors) are reviewed quarterly (March, June, September and December). Representatives of investors, trading members, financial institutions issuing financial products on the indices and the Vienna Stock Exchange contribute their experience to the Index Committee, which decides on the rules and regulations for the indices.
