The SGI European Value Quality Index aims to track an equity basket of stocks embedded in Stoxx Europe 600, selected combining both value and quality factors. Combining the rankings in order to get a better basket leads to more robust results than combining the extremes.


The 120 stocks Value Quality selection is based on Value criteria (Book to Price ratio, Earnings to Price ratio EBITDA to Enterprise Value ratio…) and Quality criteria (Piotroski score and Merton’s Distance to default). The basket is equally weighted and reviewed on a quarterly basis.

Societe Generale has signed a contract with Solactive AG wherein Solactive AG undertakes to calculate and maintain the Index.
