OMSP1: Investing in the real Swiss economy

OMSP1: Investing in the real Swiss economy

The Swiss stock market is known for its stability and strength in financial and pharmaceutical companies. But, we all know that there’s more to Switzerland than that. Industrial companies, consumer goods, tourism and the service sectors make up more than two-thirds of the economy. But, how does one invest in this broader market?

Traditional Swiss market indexes like the SMI and SPI are heavily weighted towards a few large corporations, particularly in pharmaceuticals. While these companies are undeniably important, they don't represent the full spectrum of the Swiss economic landscape. At Obermatt, with over 20 years of experience analyzing the Swiss stock market, we were passionate about creating a solution, and that's why the Obermatt Swiss Pearls Index (OMSP1) was born.

Launched in late 2023, OMSP1 meticulously tracks 36 carefully selected Swiss stocks. These companies, which we call the "pearls" of Switzerland, are chosen based on a specific set of financial and non-financial criteria that prioritize solid financials over fleeting market trends. This approach provides a more balanced and potentially less volatile investment compared to traditional Swiss market indexes.

OMSP1 is not just an index. It's also an Exchange Traded Product (ETP) that trades on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the ticker symbol OMSP1. If you're interested in getting exposure to the true strength of the Swiss economy, beyond just pharmaceuticals, then OMSP1 could be a good option to consider. As with any investment, do your research and understand the risks involved before investing.

We are proud of the collaboration for the OMSP1 with our valued partners, Maverix Securities and Amasus Investment AG.
