The SIX Swiss Exchange offers a wide array of stock indices. Apart from renowned indices such as the SMI®, SLI® and SPI®, it also calculates various other industry-, sector- and customer-specific indices. The companies listed on the stock exchange vary significantly in a range of aspects, for example as regards their sector and size. In the case of size the measure used is the market capitalisation. This measures the number of shares multiplied by the price per share. A distinction is made between companies with large market capitalisations (blue chip), medium capitalisations (mid cap) and small capitalisations (small cap).
