As the Swiss market barometer, the index continues to reflect the performance of the Swiss equity market. In addition to measuring performance, the SPI is also used as the underlying for index-based financial products and for portfolio management activities. The SPI currently contains shares from 205 companies In order to be included in the SPI universe, the company must have its primary listing on SIX Swiss Exchange and a free-float of at least 20%.
