The Special Corporate Governance Equity Index (IGC) 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 IGC is designed to measure average stock performance tracking changes in the prices of stocks listed for trading on the special corporate governance segments of BM&FBOVESPA known as Level 1, Level 2 and Novo Mercado.
The IGC is a total return index (see the Concepts and Practices Manual for BM&FBOVESPA Indices).
The IGC 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).
