FTSE Group (pronEng|ˈfʊtsi, as if written "footsie") is a British provider of stock market indices and associated data services, operating out of premises in Canary Wharf.

Products

FTSE operates the well known FTSE 100 Index and FTSE 250 Index as well as over 100,000 other indices, including 600 real-time indices. There are currently seven main groups of indices: Global Equity, Regional and Partner, Fixed Income, Real Estate, Alternative Investment, Responsible Investment, and Investment Strategy. Fees from the use of index information and associated services generate the revenues necessary to continue operations. FTSE has offices in London, New York, Paris, Frankfurt, Madrid, San Francisco, Beijing, Sydney, Tokyo, and Hong Kong.

History

The FTSE was created in 1962 as the FTSE All Share-Index. The letters F-T-S-E are no longer an acronym although they represent that FTSE is a joint venture between the "Financial Times" (F-T) and London Stock Exchange (S-E). In 1982 the FTSE 100 was introduced, representing about 80 percent of the London Stock Exchange's value. In 1995 FTSE Group was made an independent company. The first of several overseas offices was opened in New York City in 1999, Paris in early 2000, and Hong Kong, Frankfurt, and San Francisco in 2001. Madrid was opened 2002, and Tokyo in 2003.
