The KOSPI index tracks the performance of stocks traded on the Korea Exchange (KRX). It includes over 800 large and mid-cap Korean companies across all major industries like technology, automobiles, manufacturing, and financial services.

KOSPI functions as the flagship index for the Korean stock market, much like the S&P 500 does for the US. It accounts for about 70% of the total market capitalization on the KRX.

The index was introduced in 1983 and is calculated based on the market cap weighting methodology. This means the index level goes up or down based on the changes in the combined market value of its constituent stocks.

Why Does KOSPI Matter?

As a key benchmark for Asia's 4th largest economy, KOSPI provides important insights into the overall health of Korean equities. It is widely tracked by global investors to gauge the risk sentiment in Korea and make asset allocation decisions.

KOSPI is also crucial because it underlies popular derivative contracts like index futures and options traded on the Korea Exchange. These contracts allow investors to hedge their portfolios against volatility in the broader Korean market.

Top Constituents of KOSPI

As of July 2021, the top 10 companies by market cap in the KOSPI index are:
