FTSE’s benchmark methodology

 

FTSE Group (“FTSE”) is a world leader in the creation and management of indexes. FTSE calculates and manages a comprehensive range of equity, fixed income, real estate and investment strategy indexes, on both standard and custom bases. The FTSE Global Equity Index Series covers more than 17,000 securities in 49 countries and captures 99% of the world’s investable market capitalization.

FTSE uses transparent rules in determining inclusion in its indexes. Committees periodically review the indexes to ensure they remain objective and accurately reflect their target markets. Stocks are screened for liquidity and adjusted for free float so benchmarks reflect the shares available in the open market.

All rights in a FTSE index (the "Index") vest in FTSE International Limited ("FTSE"). "FTSE®" is a trademark of London Stock Exchange Group companies and is used by FTSE under license. The Vanguard Fund(s) (the "Product") has been developed solely by Vanguard. The Index is calculated by FTSE or its agent. FTSE and its licensors are not connected to and do not sponsor, advise, recommend, endorse or promote the Product and do not accept any liability whatsoever to any person arising out of (a) the use of, reliance on or any error in the Index or (b) investment in or operation of the Product.

All investments, including those that seek to track indexes, are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. While ETFs are designed to be as diversified as the original indexes they seek to track and can provide greater diversification than an individual investor may achieve independently, any given ETF may not be a diversified investment. Foreign investing involves additional risks, including currency fluctuations and political uncertainty. Stocks of companies in emerging markets are generally more risky than stocks of companies in developed countries.
