The series has a proud history of innovation, and was the first global benchmark to adopt a seamless coverage of Small, Mid and Large Cap stocks, and incorporate Developed, Advanced Emerging and Secondary Emerging markets.
The FTSE Global Equity Index Series was also the first major global benchmark to adopt a transparent and evidence-driven country classification process. Based on objective criteria, FTSE's country classification process leads the way in providing a forward looking, proactive framework. As a result of this process, FTSE was the first major index provider to move South Korea from Emerging to Developed status.
