CSR Thursday Lunch on 9 Feb. with Ethos

Join us for next week’s CSR Thursday Lunch and find out more about the first Swiss stock exchange index dedicated to corporate governance, the Ethos Swiss Corporate Governance Index (ESCGI), with Vincent Kaufmann, CEO of Ethos Foundation and of Ethos Services.   



“On the 30th January, the Ethos Foundation launches a new stock exchange index dedicated to corporate governance at Swiss companies. In collaboration with the Swiss Stock Exchange (SIX Swiss Exchange), Ethos publishes the “Ethos Swiss Corporate Governance Index” (ESCGI) which takes into account the main corporate governance best practice criteria in order to define the weight of the different constituents.

This is the first index of this type on the Swiss stock market. The index allows investors to reduce the weight of companies that entail a corporate governance risk.” (from Ethos website: https://www.ethosfund.ch/en/products-and-services/ethos-swiss-corporate-governance-index).
