FTSE Russell is delighted to announce the launch of a new custom UK equity index, based on its ESG Ratings: The FTSE UK 100 ESG Select Index, resulting from a close collaboration with HSBC Bank’s Client Solutions Group. The FTSE UK 100 ESG Select Index is designed to measure the performance of the top 100 ESG-rated companies within the FTSE All-Share Index, as demonstrated by their Environmental, Social and Governance practices.

This transparent methodology achieves index exposure to the UK equity market whilst considering the companies’ ESG Ratings.
