The construction of the index is done in two stages:
 Rulesbased inclusion in the index universe
 Determination of constituent weights
Weighting Schemes
The index is marketvalue weighted.
In valueweighted indices, each constituent influences the index in proportion to its value. The weights are calculated at each rebalancing date using the following formula:

w_{i,t} = \frac{V_{i, t}}{\sum\limits_{i}^{n} V_{i, t}}

The fair value is estimated using a consistent asset pricing methodology. Indexconstituent value weights are calculated in the reference currency so that all constituent market values denominated in a different currency than the reference currency are converted accordingly.
Info 

Alternative weighting schemes are available including equal weights and capped weights, by which individual weights cannot exceed a 5% cap. A capped valueweight index follows the same calculation methodology as the valueweights scheme described above, however, prevents any single constituent from having a disproportionate influence on the index. A limit is imposed whereby an individual constituent's weight are capped at 5%. Thereafter, the weights of the remaining index constituents are increased as a consequence of reducing the weights of the larger companies. The weights of the uncapped constituents are then checked, and if they exceed 5%, they are then also capped at 5%. This is an iterative process that is repeated until no company exceeds 5%.

Custom weighting schemes can also be designed in order to over or underweight different TICCS® segments. 
Constituent Selection
Constituents (or Index Universe) are selected with the aim of creating a representative sample of the Identified Universe, as described in the Universe Standard.
Constituent Entry and Exit
Constituents enter the index when they enter the index universe i.e. on their date of issuance.
Constituents exit the index when they reach maturity or default.
Timing of Changes
The index is reviewed on a quarterly basis by the EDHECinfra Index Committee for new entries and exits.
