The FTSE/JSE Africa Index Series resulted from a joint venture between the JSE Limited (JSE) and the FTSE Group (FTSE), a world leader in the creation and management of indices. The series brought with it a change in the philosophy and methodology for calculating indices and classifying sectors. The FTSE/JSE Africa Index Series replaced the JSE Actuaries indices on 24 June 2002.
The FTSE/JSE Africa Index Series complies with the recommendations made by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), as laid out in the Principles for Financial Benchmarks published in July 2013 (the IOSCO Principles).
