The asset classes in our BBGI Group index family can be broken down into two main sectors:

  • Traditional assets (5)
  •  Non-traditional assets (3)

Traditional assets are most commonly found in diversified benchmark indices. They are represented by investments in equities, bonds and real estate in Swiss francs or foreign currencies.

They are the basic investments generally selected to build diversified portfolios, both in terms of type of asset, geographic location, economic sector and currency. Often, they are the most liquid assets, the most transparent, and those that are best understood by investors.

Non-traditional assets bring together investment types that are not generally considered among the primary sources of investment, rather as opportunities to diversify the basic investments. Often they do not correlate with traditional investments and should achieve higher performance levels in the long run, although they are often more risky. The non-traditional assets selected in our indices are commodities, hedge funds and private equity.
