Objective

The SGI European Carry Index aims to track an equity basket selected on their capacity to provide high dividend yields to their owners in the future from stocks embedded in STOXX Europe 600 Index.

Mechanism

The SGI European Carry Index is based on a 5 step selection methodology applied to the stocks comprising the Stoxx Europe 600 Index, corrected from stocks with an average daily volume  below 3 millions euros. The stocks are ranked according to their dividend yield over the last year. The 120 highest yielding stocks are selected and equally weighted in the index. The rebalancing frequency is quarterly, smoothed on 5-business days.

The SGI European Carry Index (the “Index”) is the exclusive property of Societe Generale. Societe Generale has signed a contract with Solactive AG wherein Solactive AG undertakes to calculate and maintain the Index. The Index is not sponsored, promoted, sold or supported in any other manner by Solactive AG nor does Solactive AG offer any express or implicit guarantee or assurance either with regard to the results of using the Index and/or Index trade mark or the Index Level at any time or in any other respect.
