What you need to know about the SBF 250.
The SBF 250 was launched with a base of 1,000 points, and throughout its operation it has calculated its standings twice a day; once in the opening and once at closing. The index featured the most successful 250 companies on the CAC All Shares index – an index which included every company that is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange. However, the CAC All Shares index was replaced by the CAC All-Tradable index in March 2011, and the SBF 250 now takes its listings from there. Among the 250 companies listed are all of the companies listed on the SBF 120.
