Objective

The SGI US Quality Index aims to track an equity basket offering to their owners an exposure to high quality shares by taking long position on stocks embedded in S&P 500 Index.

Mechanism

The SGI US Quality 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 Piotroski score (pofitability, leverage, liquidity and operating efficiency factors) and Merton's Distance to default (financials are excluded). The 100 highest quality stocks are selected and equally weighted in the index. The rebalancing frequency is quarterly, smoothed on 5-business days.
