FTSE 100 Index components | values (GB0001383545)
The FTSE 100 Index or Financial Times Stock Exchange Index (colloquially: Footsie; fʊt͡si) is the UK's most important stock index. The abbreviation FTSE stands for Financial Times Stock Exchange. The FTSE 100 tracks the aggregate price development of the 100 largest and highest-turnover companies on the London Stock Exchange. It thus maps the market segment of the British standard values and is the leading index for the British stock market. He is determined by the FTSE Group, which emerged from a joint venture between the London Stock Exchange and the Financial Times.
The FTSE 100 is a price index and represents 80 percent of the market capitalization of the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The index level is determined solely on the basis of share prices and only adjusted for income from subscription rights and special payments. Dividend payments are not included in the calculation of the index. Corporate actions such as stock splits have no (distorting) influence on the index. The calculation is updated every second during LSE trading hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. local time (9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CET). The investment universe includes all companies based in Great Britain that are listed on the London Stock Exchange.
To create a selection list, the companies in the investment universe are sorted in descending order according to market capitalization. An index value that has a market capitalization rank below 111 on the relevant reference date will be replaced. Likewise, a non-index stock with a market capitalization rank better than 90 will be included in the FTSE 100 until all old index stocks are replaced. The weighting of the values in the index is based on market capitalization. There is no capping of individual titles. The composition of the FTSE 100 is reviewed quarterly in March, June, September and December.
