SYCYBS | Syntax Cyber Security Index

Index Description

The Syntax Cyber Security Index comprises up to 50 modified-equally weighted publicly traded US companies that make software or hardware used to secure information online, as well as companies that provide cybersecurity services. The Index applies screens for thematic purity of exposure, liquidity and size, and defines business segments including cybersecurity software development, cybersecurity hardware manufacturing and cybersecurity services.

The Index uses company classification data structured in Syntax's proprietary Functional Information System (FIS), which draws primarily from audited annual reports (e.g., 10-K filings) and secondarily from unaudited documents (e.g., news articles, company websites) to allow granular groupings and comparisons of companies by the characteristics of their various product lines.
