SIX has released SPI Gender Equality Index, an index measuring the number of women in top management at Swiss companies. The index is part of the company’s recently introduced ESG Indices family and uses components from the largest 100 companies of the Swiss Performance Index (SPI). To be included in the index, companies must have between 20% and 80% women on the board of directors, and between 15% and 85% on the management board. Marion Leslie, head of financial information at SIX, says: “This index offers a transparent benchmark to measure gender diversity on Swiss companies’ boards and management committees.”
