The Hang Seng Index ("HSI") is one of the earliest stock market indexes in Hong Kong. Publicly launched on 24 November 1969, the HSI has become the most widely quoted indicator of the performance of the Hong Kong stock market.
Nikkei calculates and publishes various types of the indexes such as the "Nikkei Stock Average (Nikkei 225)" which is known as a representative Japanese stock market indicator, and the "JPX-Nikkei Index 400" which is jointly calculated with Japan Exchange Group and Tokyo Stock Exchange.
FTSE has partnered with Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and the Singapore Exchange (SGX) to jointly calculate the Singapore stock market's main benchmark, the Straits Times Index (STI), and to create a broader series of indices for the Singapore market representing various sized companies, sectors and themes. The indices are suitable for benchmarking purposes and as tools in the creation of financial products such as institutional and retail funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), derivatives contracts and other index-linked products.
