FTSE All-Shares Indices

Indices which show the performance of the UK and European markets. There are a number of different FTSE Actuaries Share Indices compiled either by the London Stock Exchange ( www.practicallaw.com/A36384) (LSE) or by the Financial Times, both in conjunction with the Institute of Actuaries and the Faculty of Actuaries under a standard set of ground rules. The most important are the FTSE 100 Index (of the 100 largest UK companies principally in terms of market capitalisation ( www.practicallaw.com/A36416)) and the FT Actuaries All-Share Index. The indices are designed to give investors an idea of the general movement of the stock markets and its overall value.
