Some info about FBMKLCI
More info available here:
The KLCI is now known as the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI and the enhancements were implemented on Monday, 6 July 2009.
The FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI will consist of the largest 30 companies ranked by full market capitalisation, i.e. before the application of any investability weightings. The number of constituents in this index is fixed.All classes of ordinary shares in issue are eligible for inclusion in the FTSE Bursa Malaysia
Index Series, subject to conforming to all other rules of eligibility, free float and liquidity.
The semi-annual review of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Index Series constituents takes place in
June and December. The meeting to review the constituents will be held June and December,
using data from the close of business on the last day of trading in May and November. Any
constituent changes will be implemented after close of business on the third Friday in June
A security will be inserted at the periodic review if it rises to 25th or above while a security will be deleted at the periodic review if it falls to 36th or below.
If a constituent is de-listed from Bursa Malaysia, or ceases to have a firm quotation, or is
subject to a take-over or has ceased to be a viable constituent as defined by the Ground
Rules, it will be removed from the list of constituents. The vacancy will be filled by selecting the highest ranking security by full market value in the
appropriate Reserve List as at the close of the index calculation two days prior to the deletion
and related indices adjusted in accordingly.
If a new issue is so large (i.e. its full market capitalisation amounts to 2% or more of the full
capitalisation of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index, before the application of individual
constituent investability weightings) that the effectiveness of the index as a market indicator
would be significantly and adversely affected by its omission, the new issue will be included as
a constituent of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI and the remaining FTSE Bursa Malaysia Indices
that it qualifies for after the close of business on the fifth day of trading and eligibility will be
determined using the closing price on the first day of trading.
