FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia June Semi-Annual Review

KUALA LUMPUR: Bursa Malaysia Berhad (“Bursa Malaysia” or the “Exchange”) announced today the addition of 12 companies to the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia (“F4GBM”) Index and 9 companies to the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Shariah (“F4GBMS”) Index.

The F4GBM Index evaluates the performance of public listed companies (PLCs) with good liquidity that demonstrate strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices. Constituents are selected from the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index, encompassing small, medium, and large market capitalization segments. The F4GBMS Index, a subset of the F4GBM, tracks Shariah-compliant constituents according to the Shariah Advisory Council (SAC) screening methodology. Both indices undergo semi-annual reviews in June and December based on international criteria.

In the latest review period for June 2024, the F4GBM Index has increased its total number of constituents to 120 with the addition of 12 new companies, marking a 400% increase since its inception in December 2014, when it started with 24 constituents. The F4GBMS Index will see 9 additions and 1 deletion, bringing its total to 95 constituents. All changes will take effect on 24 June 2024 (Monday).
