FTSE has partnered with Bolsa Institucional de Valores (BIVA) in Mexico, to create the FTSE BIVA Index, applying a global perspective allied to knowledge gained through local partnership. BIVA is a Mexican Stock Exchange that provides local and global investors with cutting-edge technology for trading, market data solutions as well as listing and maintenance services for companies. (For further information, visit www.biva.mx).
The FTSE BIVA Index is designed to reflect the performance of liquid Mexican companies, which are constituents of the FTSE Mexico All Cap Index. Using the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (GEIS) as a base, the FTSE BIVA Index applies a higher liquidity threshold to achieve accurate and investable universe coverage while maintaining consistency and integrity. Index constituents are weighted by market capitalization, and each security is tested for liquidity at the semi-annual index reviews in March and September.
Through the FTSE BIVA Index, FTSE Russell provides the insights and tools necessary for investors to gain an accurate view into the most liquid tier of the Mexican market, providing investors with an easily understandable framework for analyzing equity portfolios and managing funds based on active or passive mandates. The FTSE BIVA Index is suitable for benchmarking purposes and as tools in the creation of a wide variety of financial products, such as index-linked funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and derivatives contracts. Real time and end of day data is available from Bloomberg (FTBIVA) and Thomson Reuters (.FTFTBIVA). Price, total, and net of tax values are available for the Index.
