More diversification, less concentration

Enjoy a new way to diversify your equity trading strategy with E-mini S&P 500 Equal Weight futures. Unlike the S&P 500 Index, which is weighted based on market capitalization, the S&P 500 Equal Weight Index allocates the same weight to all names in the S&P 500 Index, presenting new opportunities to trade the major U.S. benchmark.

Capital efficiency

Get to know the S&P 500 Equal Weight Index

S&P 500 Equal Weight Index is a stock index constructed from the constituents of the large-cap S&P 500 index. After S&P 500 inclusion, the S&P Equal Weight Index invests an equal dollar value into each name in the index. Rather than the index being heavily weighted to the largest companies, the index invests approximately 0.2% weight in each constituent at the quarterly rebalance.
