Full Form of FTSE
Financial Times Stock Exchange
FTSE Full Form is Financial Times Stock Exchange. FTSE is the operator of a share index related to the business position of 100 companies that are listed on the London Stock Exchange. This index is operated and supervised by FTSE Group which is an important and wholly owned subsidiary organization of the LSE Group (London Stock Exchange Group). FTSE was founded in 1984 to prepare share index for listed business organizations on the basis of the measurement of their market capitalization and some other specified rules and regulations like inclusion in the LSE list, liquidity, nationality, and free float factor.
These regulations are strictly maintained and implemented. The constituents of the list of companies are selected on the basis of quarterly market review and analysis. The index is prepared for a number of shares that are available for trading. Therefore, it heavily depends on a free floating factor.
This index reached its highest value on 27th April 2015. The listed companies are mainly international organizations. This is why critics and experts think that FTSE 100 cannot effectively indicate the market position and economical situation of the business sectors in the United Kingdom. They are of the opinion to use the FTSE All-Share index.
