The SGI World 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 MSCI World Index.


The SGI World Quality Index is based on a 5 step selection methodology applied to the shares comprising the MSCI World Index corrected from stocks with an average daily volume below 3 millions euros. 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 350 highest quality stocks are selected and equally weighted in the index. The rebalancing frequency is quarterly, smoothed on 5-business days.
