The Ethos Swiss Corporate Governance Index is proprietary to Ethos and calculated and maintained by SIX Swiss Exchange AG
The new ESCGI index will serve as reference for the management of the fund "Ethos – Equities CH indexed Corporate Governance".
The index objectives aim to:
- Reduce the corporate governance risks by underweighting or excluding companies that do not apply best governance practices
- Reduce the carbon impact of the index by underweighting companies with significant carbon emissions
- Avoid overweighting companies that are under a serious controversy
- Avoid overweighting companies that have a weight exceeding 15% in SPI
- Overweight companies that do not fall into one of the above categories.
