ETHOS SWISS CORPORATE GOVERNANCE INDEX LARGE

In 2019, Ethos launched a new index for Swiss equities: the Ethos Swiss Corporate Governance Index Large (ESCGI Large). The expertise of SIX Group, the operator of the Swiss stock exchange that calculates this index, enables Ethos to benefit from the best skills in index construction and to provide investors with a credible and professional alternative to the use of traditional indices. It allows investors to reduce the weighting of companies that present a governance risk.
