The JPX-Nikkei Mid and Small Cap Index applies the concept of the JPX-Nikkei Index 400, which is an index comprised of highly attractive listed companies, to mid and small cap equities by selecting companies that focus on capital efficiency and investor-oriented management, and aims to foster greater awareness of such issues among corporate executives.

The constituents are common stocks whose main market is the Tokyo Stock Exchange Prime Market, Standard Market or Growth Market. They are top 200 issues selected based on the following process and criteria:

– Screening process which includes market capitalization and market liquidity indicator
– Scoring of quantitative indicators such as three-year average ROE and three-year cumulative operating profit as well as of qualitative factors, including appointment of independent directors and female board members, adoption or scheduled adoption of IFRS and disclosure of English earnings information and/or corporate governance report via TDnet
