The SXI Special Industry Indices are specially selected sector indices. These sectors have been selected mainly
due to the international and domestic significance of the specific sector as well as the number of companies
listed on SIX Swiss Exchange that are representative of the industry. These indices satisfy a growing demand on
the part of foreign institutional investors to participate in this segment of the Swiss equity market. They will
also increase the attractiveness of the SIX Swiss Exchange as a stock exchange for companies in these sectors.
This index is a platform for companies and a benchmark for investors.
The sector universe of the SXI Life Sciences consists of pharmacy, medical technology and biotechnology.
In addition to the companies from SXI Bio+Medtech, the index also considers companies from the pharma sector.
