Focus: The Diapason Commodity Agriculture Non-GMO* Index is designed to be a liquid, international benchmark for *Non-Genetically Modified Organisms (NGMO) investments in the OECD. Two principles were used in designing the index: World Trade Significance (WTS) and World Contract Liquidity (WCL). The Index, is currently composed of 5 physical, agricultural commodities and is weighted to reflect the relative size of international exports for NGMO products, as well as to reflect the liquidity of the relevant futures contracts (33.33% WTS to 66.67%WCL). The index constituents are: TGE NGM Soybean (42.10%); Euronext Milling Wheat (16.85%); Euronext Feed Wheat (11.61%); Euronext Corn (8.99%) and Euronext Rapeseed (20.45%). The Index is rebalanced monthly and the liquidity weights are readjusted annually - International contract universe (57.90%in EU; 42.10%in Japan) ie the index constituents are non-US-centric
