FTSE 100 Semi Annual Equally Weighted Index licensed for first ETF


FTSE Russell has licensed the FTSE 100 Semi Annual Equally Weighted Index to Deutsche Bank, who have created the first ETF linked to the benchmark. The db x-trackers FTSE 100 Equal Weight UCITS ETF listed on London Stock Exchange on 14 August.

The FTSE 100 Semi Annual Equally Weighted Index is comprised of the same constituents as the market capitalisation weighted FTSE 100 Index, however each company is given an equal weighting of 1% at the semi annual rebalance. The index is also calculated on a net tax basis.
Sudir Raju, Managing Director of ETP EMEA, FTSE Russell, says: “FTSE Russell is delighted that Deutsche Bank has chosen to license one of our indexes for its new London listed ETF. We continue to develop a range of variants on our more established benchmarks, such as the FTSE 100 or Russell 2000, which ETF providers can use in building their different investment solutions. This results in greater choice for the end-user.”
