Index/Benchmark Summary

The index seeks to provide exposure to the companies of the S&P 500 with the exception of those companies included in the information technology sector (the "technology sector"). The S&P 500 is a measure of large-cap U.S. stock market performance. It is a float-adjusted, market capitalization-weighted index of 500 U.S. operating companies and real estate investment trusts selected through a process that factors in criteria such as liquidity, price, market capitalization and financial viability.

The index classifies each company in the S&P 500 as part of a particular sector, using the Global Industry Classification Standards (GICS) to define companies within a sector, jointly produced by S&P Dow Jones Indices and MSCI. The following sectors are included within GICS: consumer discretionary, consumer staples, energy, financials, health care, industrials, information technology, materials, communication services and utilities. A sector comprises multiple industries. For example, the information technology sector comprises companies in, among others, the software and information technology services, and technology manufacturing and distribution industries. The index consists of companies from each of the sectors other than the information technology sector. Each security in the index is market-cap weighted according to the same rules as the S&P 500.
