The S-Network Space Index is designed to serve as fair, impartial and transparent measures of the performance of space industry equities.
Key defining factors include:
The S-Network Space Index apply metrics that are specific to the space industry and are not applicable to other sectors or industries, resulting in highly idiosyncratic performance characteristics.
The S-Network Space Index focuses on companies that are significantly engaged in space-related activities, devoting 80% of the weight to a pure-play tranche.
The S-Network Space Index depends on clearly defined rules-based methodology, which is overseen by an impartial Index Committee. No discretion is exercised in compiling the index and a pre-defined screening protocol ensures a consistent, transparent and arms-length compilation process.
