Flagship Indices and Bespoke Benchmarks
The index offering from SIX includes various equity, bond, real estate and strategy indices as well as customized indices. Under the label SMI Indices, SIX offers access to a wide range of investment classes through its standardised indices and expanded strategies.
Our indices are attractive benchmarks for the Swiss market and are used both as underlyings for index-based products, such as ETFs, fund solutions and structured products, and for activities in the portfolio management process. The SMI, the most important equity index in Switzerland, is part of the SIX offering.
All SMI Indices rely on a rule-based, transparent methodology. For every index, the rules are defined in the regulations for that index and can be viewed there. In 2014 SIX announced its compliance with the International Organization of Securities Commission's (IOSCO) Principles for Financial Benchmarks for the SMI Indices.
In addition to the SMI Indices , SIX also develops individual index solutions, referred to as customized indices.
The use of SMI Indices and their registered trademarks as well as the access to restricted index data are governed by a licensing agreement.
