Tokyo Stock Exchange To Begin Calculating US Dollar Hedged Index


To satisfy market demand for TOPIX index values that hedge foreign currency risk, the Tokyo Stock Exchange has been calculating and publishing the TOPIX Total Return Euro Hedged Index since January 2011 and will now begin calculating the TOPIX Total Return Index hedged into US Dollars.

The TOPIX Total Return US Dollar Hedged Index is calculated by hedging beginning-of-period balances using rolling one-month USD-JPY currency forward contracts. The index uses a hedge ratio of 100% and calculation is based on a methodology developed by S&P Dow Jones Indices.
