Special exhibition - starting 1 June 2018
30 years SMI
equity indices explained
In our new special exhibition "30 Years SMI: Equity Indices Explained!", we take the 30th anniversary of the leading Swiss index as an opportunity to take a closer look at equity indices as such. First calculated at 1,500 points in 1988, the SMI quickly rose to become Switzerland's most important equity index. But what is a blue-chip index? What are indexes used for? And how long have they been around? From 1 June, 2018, we will address these and many other questions and explain the origin, history and significance of SMI, Dow Jones, Nikkei & Co.
