UK - The FTSE4Good index series is now complete with the launch of two new benchmarks - the FTSE4Good Global Index and the FTSE4Good US Index.
The complete series now offers indices across four developed markets – the UK, Europe, US and global - covering up to 90% of the world’s financial markets, said FTSE.
All indices in the series are designed to contain companies that meet international standards of corporate social responsibility and target the socially responsible investment (SRI) market. Commenting on the additions, Mark Makepeace, chief executive of FTSE Group said that SRI had increased by more than 1000% during the last four years. The indices have begun calculation. The next review of the series is set for March 2002. Constituent lists and full details of the new indices are available at www.ftse4good.com.
