The Corporate Governance Trade Index (IGCT) is compiled as a weighted average of a theoretical portfolio of stocks pursuant to criteria set forth in this methodology.
The indices compiled by BM&FBOVESPA adopt concepts and practices set forth in the Concepts and Practices Manual for BM&FBOVESPA Indices.
The IGCT is designed to measure average stock performance tracking changes in the prices of stocks selected as constituents of the Special Corporate Governance Equity Index (IGC) to the extent they meet certain additional membership eligibility criteria, as set forth herein.
The IGCT is a total return index (see the Concepts and Practices Manual for BM&FBOVESPA Indices).
The IGCT is composed exclusively of shares and units representing shares of BM&FBOVESPA-listed issuers that meet the inclusion criteria set forth below.
The index universe excludes Brazilian Depositary Receipts (BDRs) and shares of issuers under judicial or extrajudicial reorganization, government- or court-ordered administration or intervention, as well as shares otherwise designated to be under exceptional trading status (see the Concepts and Practices Manual for BM&FBOVESPA Indices).
