How is NIFTY Financial Services calculated? How are stocks selected for inclusion in NIFTY Financial Services?

The NIFTY Financial Services’ share price is computed by weighting its 20 stocks on the basis of periodically capped free-float market capitalization relative to a base market capitalization value.

The securities must fulfill the following eligibility criteria to be included in the NIFTY Financial Services index:

  1. Should be listed on the National Stock Exchange.
  2. Should form a part of NIFTY 500 universe.
  3. Should be a part of the Financial Services sector.
  4. Should preferably be traded on NSE’s F&O segment.
  5. A recently listed company (IPO) can be included if it meets the above eligibility criteria for a period of three months instead of six months.
  6. Should adhere to the cap of 33% in case of a single stock and 62% for the top 3 stocks cumulatively at the time of rebalancing. This capping factor is realigned on a quarterly basis in the months of March, June, September, and December on the basis of T-3 prices.

The final selection involves the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate the weights of each sub-sector of financial services stocks in NIFTY 500 based on average float-adjusted market capitalization.

Step 2: Sort the companies in descending order based on average float-adjusted market capitalization within each subsector.

Step 3: Include the companies if their average free-float market capitalization is at least 1.5 times of the index’s smallest constituent’s average free-float market capitalization.

Step 4: Companies from each sub-sector will be selected in the same proportion as their sub-sector’s weightage in the main index, as calculated in Step 1.

The index value is calculated as follows –

Index value = Current market capitalization/ (Base market capitalization * Base Index Value)
