Measuring the Impact of Brexit on UK Companies

The Brexit 50/50 indices are designed to act as barometers for assessing how Brexit is impacting UK companies by analysing the difference in performance between those companies that generate a large portion of their revenues from the UK compared to those that have less revenue exposure to the UK.

Analysing Performance by UK Revenue Exposure

We partnered with FactSet, a global provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications,and industry-leading services, to create the new Brexit 50/50 indices. The indices, which are calculated in real-time, utilise FactSet Geographic Revenue Exposure (GeoRev™) data to normalise and geographically analyse where UK-listed companies generate their revenues.

To create the indices, the constituents of the Cboe UK 100 Index (BUK 100), which tracks the top 100 UK-listed companies based on market capitalisation, were split into two groups -- those with the largest and smallest proportion of GBP revenues.
