Excellence in UK mid cap indexing

The FTSE 250 Index has come a long way in 25 years — it is now one of FTSE Russell’s most well-known and widely used indexes. Robust in its ability to mirror a dynamic segment of the UK equity market, the index is trusted, monitored and used daily by investors and promoters of investment products in the UK and globally.

Watch Mark Makepeace, non-executive chairman, FTSE Russell look back to 1992 when the FTSE 250 Index was launched and reflect on the role of FTSE Russell in UK capital markets, the growth of indexing, and his advice for future leaders.
