Solactive AG has launched the Solactive Swiss Equal-Weight Net Total Return Index, designed to represent the performance of large capitalisation stocks in Switzerland and based on an equal-weight approach.

The Index has been licensed to UBS to be used as underlying for the UBS Open End PERLES (EQLCH) available on the SIX Structured Products Exchange.
 
There has been a growing trend over the past few years in the indexing space towards smart beta, including equal-weight indices, which are seen as a good solution to have a better representation and more diversified approach of an entire industry or national market. According to UBS CIO WM Research*, investing with an equal-weight approach has shown to exhibit attractive long-run risk and return properties.
 
Steffen Scheuble (pictured), CEO, Solactive, says: “We are pleased to fill in another gap in the market for UBS, with the launch of this equal-weight index following the Swiss market via its top 20 blue chips, which offers a new approach to a well-known market.”
