Two New Indices Complete FTSE4Good series

Date 19/11/2001

The FTSE4Good index series, developed by global index provider FTSE, is completed today with the launch of two new benchmark indices, the FTSE4Good Global Index and the FTSE4Good US Index. These two indices contain companies that meet international standards of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and are designed for use by the growing socially responsible investment (SRI) market.

The complete FTSE4Good index series offers benchmark and tradable indices for four developed markets - the UK, Europe, US and Global. The series allows investors to track the performance of SRI-screened companies in all major financial markets. The base universe indices for FTSE4Good cover up to 90% of the world's financial markets, giving investors an unrivalled level of exposure to companies meeting international CSR standards.

Mark Makepeace, Chief Executive of FTSE Group said, "SRI has increased by over 1000% in the last four years. FTSE created the FTSE4Good index series to provide this fast-growing investment sector with an independent and accurate tool to measure the performance of companies meeting international CSR standards."

Constituent lists and full details of the new indices are available at www.ftse4good.com. The indices begin calculation today and are available from major data vendors. The next review of all FTSE4Good indices will take place in March 2002.
