Launched in 2006 in partnership with Bursa Malaysia, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Index Series is a broad range of indexes covering all eligible companies listed on the Bursa Malaysia Main and ACE Markets. The indexes are designed to measure the performance of the major capital segments of the Malaysian market, dividing it into large cap, mid cap, small cap, fledgling and Shariah-compliant market segments. The indexes enable market participants to measure, invest and create products in these distinct segments of the Malaysian market.
The partnership also brings FTSE Russell’s FTSE4Good index methodology to the Malaysia market by introducing the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index which has been designed to identify Malaysian companies with recognized corporate responsibility practices.
