How is NIFTY Alpha Low-Volatility 30 Calculated? How Are Stocks Selected for Inclusion in NIFTY Alpha Low-Volatility 30?

The NIFTY Alpha Low-Volatility 30 share price is computed by factor-weighting its 30 stocks based on an average percentile score on a real-time basis. This score is a 50:50 combination of:

  1.  Jensen’s Alpha from CAPM based on past 1-year prices, which gives an Alpha Z score
  2. Inverse of the standard deviation of daily price returns, which gives a Low Vol Z score

The weights are based on weighted average factor level Z score and are capped at 5% or 5x the weight of the stock in the index based on float-adjusted market capitalisation.

  6. Will compulsorily include the top 10 stocks ranked on the basis of average percentile score.
  7. Will exclude a stock if its rank falls below 50 based on average percentile score.
