SGI indices are designed to cover a wide range of asset classes.

SGI indices may be used as underlyings for a variety of structured products with a diverse range of payoffs that can be structured to meet each investor’s market views (leverage, principal protection, etc.).
To create these investable indices, SG relies on its large market access and specialized teams all around the world.
SGI indices offer daily publication of index levels on Bloomberg.
The Index Calculation Agents are third party providers appointed by SG to compute, maintain, and disseminate the Index (e.g., S&P Dow Jones, Markit, and Stoxx).
Each SGI index on the platform is rules based, transparent, and replicable.
Index compositions and daily calculations are governed by a systematic index process that is determined in advance by index rules, and which remains unchanged over time.
