The Indices for Switzerland’s Bond Market

Benchmarks for the CHF Capital Market

Swiss Bond Indices (SBI) track CHF-denominated, fixed-rate bonds listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange. The SBI provides valuable insight into the Swiss capital market, including current interest rate levels and future yields, and the origin and credit-worthiness of borrowers. It also reflects overall capitalization as an indicator of how far the capital market is being tapped.

With strict acceptance criteria regarding issue volume and value, maturity, and composite rating, the SBI is the foremost bond index in Switzerland.
