WAM Swiss Equity Yield Optimized Index
The Index reflects the performance of a virtual investment managed on the basis of a Strategy. This Strategy is determined by the Index Sponsor and the Index Sponsor is solely responsible for it. The Index Calculation Agent neither advises nor assists the Index Sponsor in connection with the preparation or implementation of the Strategy.
The Strategy of the Index Sponsor focuses on shares of listed companies in Switzerland with attractive future prospects and/or strong balance sheets. The core of this Strategy is a systematic mix of financial instruments that includes equities, structured products and/or options, with the aim to achieve an improved risk/return ratio. The Index Sponsor selects and weights the most suitable financial instrument based on proprietary quantitative and qualitative factors. The focus is on the stable and regular income generated in the form of dividends, coupon payments and/or option premiums. Consequently, a stable and sustainable increase in value with a low yiel fluctuation in the medium to long-term investment horizon should be achieved.
