Swiss Market Index

An index of 20 blue chip companies in Switzerland. It is considered a benchmark index for Swiss stocks. It consists of large cap companies and is weighted for market capitalization, meaning price changes for companies with higher market caps affect the price of the index more. It was established in 1988.
