With the introduction of the SXI Real Estate All Shares Index and an accompanying harmonization of the existing
Real Estate Indices the Swiss stock
exchange is increasing the granularity for investors in the real estate segment.
In order to harmonize the existing offering, the methodology of the existing SXI Real Estate Shares Index will be
aligned to the SXI Real Estate Funds Index rules, in that it only contains securities which have at least
75% of their assets invested in Switzerland. This change ensures consistent
measurement of the Swiss real estate market and meets the needs of many market participants. The amendment will
take effect on 18 September 2017. The first part of this harmonization, changing the name of the existing SXI
Real Estate indices, has already been carried out.
The second part is taking place with the launch of the SXI Real Estate All Shares Index as of 4 July 2017. This new index covers all real estate equities listed on SIX
Swiss Exchange, regardless of the geographical diversification of their investments. The following chart provides an overview
of the new structure of the SXI Real Estate index family.

Benchmarks for the Swiss market
The SMI, the most important equity index in Switzerland, is part of the SIX Swiss Exchange offering. But the Swiss stock
exchange also offers other important equity and bond indices as well as various strategy indices under the SMI Indices label.
SMI Indices are attractive benchmarks for the Swiss market and are used both as underlyings for index-based products, such
as ETFs, fund solutions and Structured Products, and for activities in the portfolio management process. In addition to
its own indices, SIX Swiss Exchange also develops individual index solutions.
