Multiple global equity index options
Global equity indices
Our global equity indices cover over 10,000 stocks from 51 markets, broken down into different countries, regions, and sectors.
Why choose our global equity indices?
Our global equity indices allow you to analyze and compare developed, emerging, and select frontier markets at varying levels of granularity.
Highly correlated to popular global benchmarks, the indices are backed by simpler, more affordable commercials. Sector indices are based on The Refinitiv Business Classification (TRBC), the industry's most comprehensive, up-to-date, and detailed classification scheme.
The indices are also highly representative, covering over 99.5% of each market’s investable market capitalization, making them ideal for benchmarking and analysis, or as the base for custom index strategies and overlays.
Cancellation of Biannual Rebalance of Refinitiv Global Equity Indices for H1 2020
Due to extreme global market volatility and lock-down in many countries, Refinitiv is cancelling its bi-annual rebalance (H1 2020) of Refinitiv Global Equity Indices which was effective 06th April 2020. This event was earlier conveyed to clients under DN107832 and this notification now stands cancelled in line with the latest announcement.
Refinitiv will, however, continue supporting and performing rebalances for Custom Indices and Refinitiv administered Indices. These rebalances will be performed as per the schedule, should clients decide to do so. The current composition of Refinitiv Global, Regional, Country and associated Sectoral Indices therein will be used as the starting universe, wherever required as per the methodology of the respective index family.
Renaming of Thomson Reuters Proprietary Index Series is also due on April 6th 2020, which will be implemented as scheduled.
