Equal weighting on index avoids concentration risks:
Equal-weighted design helps to avoid concentration risks.

Investment risk may be concentrated in specific sectors, countries,
currencies or companies. This means that the Fund may be more
sensitive to any localised economic, market, political or regulatory
