Unique country classification system

The economic characteristics of many countries today place them in an “in-between” category – not clearly defined as an Emerging market country but not yet qualified as a Developed market. The Advanced Emerging and Secondary Emerging categories, which are unique to FTSE Russell, allow for further segmentation of the investing universe and provides added flexibility for portfolio design.


In order to ensure investability, FTSE Russell applies free float adjustment, liquidity screens and other investability measures to include only those securities typically considered by institutional investors.


Strong governance is central to the quality and integrity of your index. FTSE Russell has been committed to leading global best practice standards in index governance and has established a reputation for robust, rules-driven and relevant index construction.

Proactively maintained

FTSE Russell indexes are regularly reviewed and rebalanced to ensure they represent the true global opportunity set while balancing turnover
