The Global Realty Majors Portfolio Index is a free-float adjusted, modified market capitalization-weighted total return index of selected real estate equity securities. It is quoted intraday on a real-time basis by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange under the symbol GRM. The index's modified market capitalization-weighted approach and qualitative screening process emphasize companies that the Cohen & Steers Index Committee believes are leading the securitization of real estate globally.

GRM can be used as an indexing benchmark, stock selection universe, underlying index for derivative instruments or performance benchmark. All index weightings are independently calculated by Standard & Poor's.
