Dari laporan The Edge:
KUALA LUMPUR (May 26): FTSE Russell and Bursa Malaysia have launched the FTSE Bursa Malaysia MidS Cap Index and the FTSE Bursa Malaysia MidS Cap Shariah Index, which covers mid- and small-cap companies.
The FTSE Bursa Malaysia MidS Cap Index currently comprises 169 constituents from the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index with a full market capitalisation range of RM200 million to RM2 billion.
Meanwhile, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia MidS Cap Shariah Index comprises all constituents of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia MidS Cap Index that are shariah-compliant.
FTSE Russell and Bursa Malaysia said the index supports the government's initiatives in injecting more liquidity into the mid- and small-cap segment.
"We are delighted to expand FTSE Russell's partnership with Bursa Malaysia with the launch of two new indexes. Mid- and small-cap companies are of increasing interest to investors around the world and these indexes will provide benchmarks for the growing market segment in Malaysia," said FTSE Russell's Asia managing director Jessie Pak.
Bursa Malaysia chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tajuddin Atan said the inclusion of the two new indexes is in line with global trends, as investors are now allocating their investment portfolio strategically to the mid- and small-cap equity segment.
"The mid- and small-cap stocks offer attractive growth prospects and provide greater opportunity for active managers to make informed decisions within the sector. At Bursa Malaysia's end, we aim to further grow the two new equity segments and continue to drive sustainability to our marketplace by bringing new investable products to the market.
"The decade-long partnership between Bursa Malaysia and FTSE Russell [has] served both parties well, and we believe the new indexes will have a good following before long," said Tajuddin.
