FTSE International Limited Key Developments

FTSE Group Launches FTSE AFSA Australia Bond Index Series

FTSE Group announced the launch of the FTSE AFSA Australia Bond Index Series. This new series provides a wide variety of index and bond level analytics, along with sub-indices for sectors, ratings and maturity bands, allowing for more granular attribution and additional customisation options. The methodology behind the new FTSE ASFA Australia Bond Index Series was designed in consultation with market participants to increase transparency in the AUD denominated bond market. It is replicable, using clear and publicly available rules, and the index utilises pricing sourced from the Interactive Data Corporation. Index management is governed by an independent committee formed by fixed-income practitioners and experts. The FTSE ASFA Australia Bond Index Series includes over 70 sub-indices, with the three main index families broken down by sector, rating and maturity: FTSE ASFA Australia Overall Index -- corporates, sovereigns and sub-sovereigns. FTSE ASFA Australia Government Index -- national and state government bonds. FTSE ASFA Australia Covered Bonds Index -- AUD denominated covered bonds.

FTSE Introduces New Global Factor Index Series

FTSE Group announced the launch of the FTSE Global Factor Index Series, a new suite of benchmarks designed to represent the performance of specific factor characteristics. Six single factor indices will be created as part of the index series: Illiquidity, Momentum, Quality, Size, Value and Volatility. They will be based on the market cap weighted FTSE Developed and FTSE Emerging indices. The initial launch phase will consist of six single factor indices representing a tilt in a specific direction (e.g. low volatility, small size). Indices exhibiting multiple factor tilts and directions will form part of the offering. In subsequent phases, the product offering will be expanded to include: A wider geographic span of indices; and the application of factor tilts to non market capitalisation-weighted indices. The FTSE Global Factor Index Series uses a common framework to achieve a controlled exposure to a target factor, whilst considering levels of diversification and capacity.
