What is The FTSE All-World Index?

The FTSE All-World Index is a broad, market-capitalization weighted index that tracks the performance of large and mid-cap stocks from developed and emerging markets worldwide. It tracks the performance of the largest companies in the world. Being included in the index is a sign of a company’s success and can lead to increased investment from foreign investors.

Simplified Meaning:

Think of it as a giant basket containing thousands of stocks from all over the world, with each stock’s weight in the basket determined by its market value. So, bigger companies like Apple or Alphabet will have a larger representation than smaller players.

Being added to the FTSE All-World Index is a prestigious accomplishment for a company, indicating its successful performance and potential for attracting further investment, especially from international investors.

When A Stock Is Added To FTSE All-World Index?

There are two main scenarios when a stock is added to the FTSE All-World Index:

1. Semi-annual review: The index is reviewed twice a year (March and September) to ensure it accurately reflects the market capitalization of global stocks. During these reviews, companies can be added, removed, or have their weightings adjusted based on:

  • Market capitalization: This is the primary factor, and only companies with sufficient market size are considered for inclusion.
  • Liquidity: The stock needs to be easily traded in sufficient volume to allow investors to buy and sell shares efficiently.
  • Domicile: The index covers developed and emerging markets, and there are specific limits on the number of companies from each country to maintain diversification.
  • Free float: The percentage of shares available for trading by the public should be above a certain threshold.

The changes announced during these reviews take effect about one month later (mid-March and mid-September).

2. Special review: In extraordinary circumstances, the index can be reviewed outside of the regular schedule. This might happen due to:

  • Corporate actions: Mergers, acquisitions, or other events that significantly change a company’s market capitalization or structure.
  • Market disruptions: Major market events that require adjustments to ensure the index reflects the current market reality.

In the case of the eight Indian companies mentioned above (Suzlon Energy, RVNL, Mazagon Dock, The Phoenix Mills, Thermax, Jindal Stainless, KPIT Tech, and Prestige Estate), they are expected to be added to the FTSE All-World Index during the upcoming March 2024 review, not as a result of a special review.
