Research & Insights
In 2015 FTSE Russell launched a series of international equity indexes for the USD-based investor that are 50% USD hedged to help investors evaluate their currency exposures and their hedging strategies when investing in foreign equities. This paper updates the research on the behavior of these indexes through June 2017; the results are consistent with earlier published findings.
In this paper we describe the enhancements to the ICB framework, outline the rationale for key changes to its structure and summarize the impact of the proposed changes.
FTSE Russell announces enhancements to its Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB) following Market Consultation
FTSE Russell, a leading global multi-asset index, data and analytics provider, has announced structural updates to its Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB), a globally recognised standard, operated and managed by FTSE Russell for categorising companies and securities. The enhancements result from the recent Market Consultation to align ICB with current industry practices and incorporate features from the Russell Global Sectors (RGS) scheme. The new ICB structure will be effective after market close on December 31, 2018. The transition dates for individual FTSE Russell index series will be announced by June 2018.
FTSE Russell announces that there will be one change to the constituents of the Straits Times Index (STI), following the September quarterly review. Jardine Strategic Holdings will join the STI and, as a result, SIA Engineering will leave the index.
