Past exhibition: "30 Years of the SMI: Stock Indices Explained"
In the special exhibition "30 Years of the SMI: Stock Indices Explained", we took the 30th anniversary of the leading Swiss index as an opportunity to take a deeper look into the topic of indices. Calculated for the first time in 1988 with a base of 1,500 points, the SMI quickly rose to become Switzerland's most important share index. But what is a blue-chip index anyway? What are indices used for? And since when have they existed? From 1 June 2018 to autumn 2019, the exhibition focused on these and many other questions and explained the origin, history and significance of the SMI, Dow Jones, Nikkei & Co.
