The New York Stock Exchange has signed an agreement with Dow Jones Indexes, a unit of Dow Jones & Co. (NYSE:DJ), to develop and maintain a family of indexes, the first of which is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2002. The collaboration marks a significant step towards the creation of a diversified family of NYSE-branded indexes. NYSE Indexes will track the performance of NYSE-listed companies in key market sectors and regions and will be the basis for tradable products, including ETFs, to be launched in the future.

"As industry leaders, the NYSE and Dow Jones are ideal organizations to create and calculate these benchmark indexes," said Catherine Kinney, NYSE president and co-chief operating officer. "Dow Jones' vast experience means NYSE indexes are being managed by the best in the business."

As a result, whenever listed companies are categorized by the NYSE it will be consistent with their NYSE Index sector categorization.

The Exchange is home to more than 2,800 companies whose total global market capitalization exceeds $16 trillion. NYSE-listed companies-including more than 460 non-US from 53 countries, range from "blue chip," to many of the world's leading technology companies, to young, high-growth enterprises.
