About the SIX World Indices

The SIX World Indices are part of the SIX Global Equity Indices suite. The SIX World Indices comprise indices with a variable number of components that aim to provide the broadest market representation for a diversified set of major geographic regions.

The indices are reviewed on a semi-annual basis in June and December and their components weighted by free-float market capitalization. The calculation is performed in USD, EUR and CHF, while the dissemination occurs as end-of-day only. All indices are available as Price Return, Net Return, and Gross Return versions.

The SIX World All Country Index selects companies worldwide, with criteria aimed at reaching a free-float capitalization coverage of at least 90% for Developed Markets countries and 80% for Emerging Markets countries. Buffers are set to limit the fluctuation of components at the lower end of the capitalization spectrum.

The remaining indices in the family are derived from the SIX World All Country Index by filtering its composition to reach the desired geographic coverage.
