Objective

The SGI US Low Volatility Index aims to get an exposure to stocks embedded in the S&P 500 Index with a low historical volatility.

Mechanism

The SGI US Low Volatility Index is based on a 5 step selection methodology applied to the shares comprising the S&P 500 Index, corrected from stocks with an average daily volume below USD 3 millions. The stocks are ranked according to their realized volatility over the last 6 months. The 100 lowest volatility stocks are selected and equally weighted in the index. The rebalancing frequency is quarterly, smoothed on 5-business days.
