Spanning beyond traditional benchmarks of broad market performance, indices are now more frequently used by investors to efficiently measure, isolate risk factors and gain access to thematic exposure via highly transparent index products. The Global Index Research group of Fin UK develops index products like ETFs/ETNs, Credit, and Commodities. The indices determine clearly the asset classes they represent and appropriately measure their performance.
A stock index measures a section of the stock market. The calculation is done by taking the average prices of a basket of selected stocks. Funds managers and investors use it to relate the overall performance of the market The Standard & Poor 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) are some of the world's best known indices and are commonly used as benchmarks for the stock market. Other prominent indices include the Japanese Nikkei 225 , the British FTSE 100, the STOXX Europe 50, and the Hong Kong Hang Seng.
