Bloomberg Indices expands global equity offering with new fixed-count domestic indices


Bloomberg has announced an expansion to its Global Bloomberg Equity Indices Domestic Family with the launch of new fixed-count domestic indices with over 20 years of history.

The new fixed-count domestic indices share a common methodology design to group companies based on their market capitalisation rankings. They offer full flexibility to meet specific investor needs to measure the market performance of any size segment for any given country or region.

Today’s launch includes 50+ new benchmarks in price, total and net return versions across several countries, including the following: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

“This expansion positions Bloomberg Indices as a one-stop shop for clients seeking comprehensive domestic equities indices and flexibility to customize each index to meet their specific investment goals,” says Allison Stone, Head of Multi-Asset Product, Bloomberg Index Services Limited. “Demands from clients grow increasingly complex and we are committed to expanding our multi-asset offering and customisation capabilities to meet and exceed these evolving needs.”

Speaking on the firm’s adoption of Bloomberg’s new fixed-count indices, Mario Romano, CEO of investment manager Sella SGR, says: “The new Bloomberg Italia fixed count indices are a welcome alternative for benchmarking the Italian market. We already utilise the Bloomberg Fixed Income indices and are pleased to have adopted the Bloomberg Italia 40, Bloomberg Italia Mid 60 and Bloomberg Italia Small 20, offering us increased flexibility to segment and measure the market against our portfolios.”

Bloomberg writes that these new fixed-count domestic indices complement Bloomberg’s existing US Domestic Index Family and the Global non-fixed count Large, Mid, Small & Micro-cap equities offering.
