Benchmark Indices

Our Solactive benchmark indices aim to track several segments of the stock and bond market. These indices can either be used directly in a product, as a benchmark, or as the starting universe of a developed index.

Global Benchmark Series

The construction of the Global Benchmark Series follows a strict and consistent bottom-up approach. This gives you access to a fully customized exposure, as country indices can be compiled according to any regional combination. It will track the underlying markets through dynamic size segments defined by relative market capitalization, hence accounting for current market developments. Tradability of the Global Benchmark Series is a key feature that’s ensured by the definition of high liquidity and quality standards. The flexibility and comprehensiveness of the product is underlined by the availability of different size segments, currency versions, weighting schemes and return types for each country.

Solactive US Benchmark Index Series

The Solactive US Benchmark Index Series offers exposure to various traditional size segments of the US stock market covering small, mid, and large cap companies as well as the overall market. Thereby, the indices not only serve for benchmarking purposes but represent meaningful starting universes for smart beta or tailor-made index concepts based on our clients’ needs. Constituent selection and weighting based on free float market capitalization paired with consistent liquidity standards and IPO reviews ensure that the Solactive US Benchmark Index Series represents current market developments.

Solactive Canada Benchmark Index Series

The Solactive Canada Benchmark Index Series covers both large cap companies as well as the overall Canadian stock market. In addition to their use as benchmarks for the respective size segment, the indices can serve as starting universes for smart beta or tailor-made index concepts based on our clients’ needs. Constituent selection and weighting based on free float market capitalization paired with consistent liquidity standards ensure that the Solactive Canada Benchmark Index Series represents current market developments.

Solactive Corporate Bond Index Series

We offer currency focused benchmarks following a rules-based approach and applying a market value weighting scheme, accurately reflecting the development of the debt markets. With a coverage of USD, EUR and GBP markets, both for investment grade and high yield securities, we’re able to provide exposure to more than 10,000 corporate bond instruments.

Solactive Canadian Bond Index Series

The Solactive Canadian Bond Universe TR Index seeks to provide a broad measure of the Canadian investment-grade fixed income market, covering government, quasi-government and corporate bonds denominated in Canadian Dollars issued in the Canadian market. The universe can serve as the basis for customized indices targeting specific segments of the market, with a short-term version and BBB-rated corporates being the first examples.
