The components are selected once a year in December and equally weighted. The weighting is updated on a quarterly basis. On March 21, 2015 the SPI Gender Equality Return was standardized at 100 points. As per its launch date, the index represents roughly 6% of the freefloat market capitalization of the entire Swiss equity market.
