The CSI 300 is a market capitalization weighted index which maps the perfomance of the 300 of the most highly liquid A shares on the Shanghai and the Shenzhen Stock Exchanges[1]. The index was created by the China Securities index Company Ltd on 4th August 2005. It can be tracked back to Dec 2004 to a base price of 1000[2].

Weighting and Calculations

The CSI indices are all calculated using a Paasche weighted composite price index formula, similar to the SSE Composite Index (SHGIDX-SH). This means that the index is based on on its base period for its calculations as compared to certain other exchanges, like the DAX, which base their calculations on the previous period (the laspyres price index calculation). [3]

CSI 300 and Sector Indices are weighted by shares.[4]

Image: Csi_weighting.jpg

  • The formula is: Current index = Current total market cap of constituents × Base Value / Base Period

Total market capitalization = ∑ (price × adjusted shares issued* free float factor)[5].

  • The free float is total A shares minus the following non-negotiated shares[6]:
  • Long term holdings by founders, families and senior executives.
  • Government holdings or frozen shares by the government.
  • Strategic holdings or restricted employee shares.
  • Cross Holdings.



To be eligible for the CSI 300 index, the stocks have to satisfy the following criteria[7]:

  • All A shares trading on the market for the past three months unless the daily trading volume of the stock is in the Top 30 A shares.
  • There seems to be no large volatility signs or any signs that the stock has been manipulated.
  • The stock has to be in the top 300 A shares in terms of size and in the top 50% of the A shares in terms of liquidity.

CSI 300 Sector Indices

The CSI 300 is divided into ten sector indices covering as many industry sectors in China. They follow similar calculations and maintenance as the main index and scrutinize more closely what goes on within each sector in China. The list of sector indices are[8]:
