      • If you agree with moving the rebalancing effective date, do you agree with the proposed two-week (10 business days) pro-forma file distribution period and keeping all reference dates unchanged?
      • Do you agree with the September 2018 rebalancing proposal to move the September 2018 rebalancing effective date from Monday, September 24, 2018 to Monday, October 1, 2018?
      • As a longer-term initiative, do you agree with the concept of a multi-day rebalancing for certain indices, as determined by S&P DJI, as opposed to a single day? What are the key benefits and drawbacks you see in applying a multi-day rebalancing approach?
      • Do you agree with the standard quarterly rebalancing schedule proposal to move the standard quarterly rebalancing schedule from the months of March, June, September, and December to a different set of months? If so, which set of months do you prefer?
      • If you agree with the question above, do you agree with extending the share freeze period through month-end to coincide with the extended rebalancing window? Do you have any concerns with market liquidity around any of the proposed rebalancing dates?
      • Do you agree with the subsequent rebalancing proposal to move each subsequent rebalancing from the third Friday of the rebalancing month to the last business day of the rebalancing month?
  • Please be advised that all comments from this consultation will be reviewed and considered before a final decision is made; however, S&P DJI makes no guarantee nor is under any obligation to comply with any of the responses. The survey may result in no changes or outcome of any kind. If S&P DJI decides to change the index methodology, an announcement will be posted on our website.
