In the financial markets, investors will select an index, or combination of indices, to serve as a reference for portfolio benchmarking. Typically an index tracks the performance of a broad asset class, such as all stocks listed on an exchange, or a narrower portion of the market, such as stocks in the banking sector. SF Markets designs and manages a number of innovative benchmark and tradable indices tailored specifically for the Sub-Saharan African region. Our indices provide both local and foreign investors a tool for benchmarking portfolios, performance measurement and attribution, investment analysis, asset allocation, and serve as an underlying for index tracking products.

To date, through experienced management, comprehensive research, first-class technology and alliances with key partners, SF Markets provides over 50 real-time and end of day indices in multiple currencies for the Sub-Saharan African region.
