The SG European Quality Income index aims to capture the performance of shares which are listed on the European regulated exchange and offer attractive and sustainable dividend yields. SGQE is a regional variation of our global SGQI product.


The methodology employed for constructing our SG European Quality Income index (SGQE) is almost identical to our global version. The index comprises 50 stocks from the universe, and gathers stocks that:

-           select exclusively European stocks listed on a regulated market (with the exception of financial companies)

-          have a free float adjusted market capitalisation of at least 1bn EUR

-          include a liquidity filter (six month average daily traded value of at least 1M EUR)

-          have always a 4% dividend yield entry level

We also rebalance the portfolio quarterly with a linearly smooth over 5 days and equal weight each stock plus we do not limit in any way sector or country exposures.
