In its statement concerning the reform of the DAX-methodology, Deutsches Aktieninstitut welcomes the majority of the proposals. However, we oppose the proposal to exclude companies involved with controversial weapons on the grounds of basic consideration: the DAX rules should not be a gateway to public opinions and debates. Furthermore, we do not advocate for or against the expansion of the DAX index. We rather suggest continuing and further deepening the discussion on the future of German indices beyond this consultation.
