FTSE All-World Index
FTSE All-World index series is a stock market index that covers over 3,100 companies in 47 countries, which started in 1986 as the FT-Actuaries World Index. It is calculated and published by the FTSE Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of the London Stock Exchange which originated as a joint venture between the Financial Times and the London Stock Exchange.
The All-World series is sub-divided into three segments:
- Advanced Emerging
- Emerging Markets.
This index has been calculated since 31 December 1986, originally as the FT-Actuaries World Indices.
FTSE took exclusive rights to integrate the Baring Emerging Markets data series with its existing FTSE World Index series. This resulted in the creation of the FTSE All-World Index series on June 30, 2000.
- The FTSE All-World Index was launched in the year 2000.
On September 22, 2003, FTSE introduced enhancements to improve the coverage of mid cap stocks in the index and remove some smaller stocks.
