Indices computed by EUROFIDAI with its high quality Stock data

EUROFIDAI Indices by country and by sector

EUROFIDAI computes indices per country (7 countries). It also provides indices per sector.

This database contains prices and returns for all EUROFIDAI indices (with or without dividends). These indices are built in the same manner as CRSP indices, meaning that all (class A) stocks are taken into consideration.

Indices are also calculated with or without foreign stocks quoted on local stock exchanges.

  • General (by country) benchmark indices: one equally-weighted, the other capitalization weighted

  • Sector indices covering ten general economic sectors (this number may vary depending on the stock exchange)

EUROFIDAI Factor indices and benchmark portfolios

This database provides returns for factor indices and benchmark portfolios. Factor-mimicking (portfolio benchmark) indices are computed in the spirit of the papers of Fama and French (1992, 1993) and Carhart (1997). EUROFIDAI computes factors and benchmark portfolios for 7 countries from Africa. 

  • Factor indices: size, book-to-market and momentum factors
  • Benchmark portfolios:
    • portfolios formed on size
    • portfolios formed on book-to-market
    • portfolios formed on momentum
  • Risk free interest rates to compute the market premium factor
