DB Rüd Blass Swiss Real Estate Funds Index
The DB Rüd Blass Swiss Real Estate Funds Index mirrors the price performance of a maximum of 10 Swiss real estate investment funds. The index was standardised at an initial baseline level of 100 as at February 1960 and calculated originally on an annual basis but, as of April 1982, is now computed monthly. The SIX Swiss Exchange has been calculating the index on behalf of Rüd Blass five times a day since 1 July 2001.
While the NAV-weighted index takes into account the size of the real estate investment funds, the equal-weighting index calculates the arithmetic mean value of the various funds included in the index. Adjustments to the index are normally made two times a year on the first trading day of January and July.
