FTSE Russell and Bursa Malaysia announced that there will be two changes to the constituents of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI, following the semi-annual review of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Index Series today. Top Glove and AMMB Holdings will replace KLCC Prop & Reits – Stapled Sec and Telekom Malaysia in the index.

Part of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Index Series, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI is widely used by investors as the primary benchmark for the Malaysian market, including derivatives through FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Futures (FKLI), FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Options (OKLI). The benchmarks are also tracked by a number of index-linked financial products, such as exchange traded funds.

The FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI reserve list, comprising the five highest ranking non-constituents of the index by market capitalisation, will be used in the event that one or more constituents are deleted from the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI in accordance with the index ground rules during the period up to the next semi-annual review. The reserve list are Westports Holdings, YTL Corp, Fraser & Neave Holdings, QL Resources and Lotte Chemical Titan Holding.

The new additions for the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Mid 70 Index are Telekom Malaysia, UMW Holdings, Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia, Aeon (M), Boustead Plantations, Hibiscus Petroleum and Matrix Concepts Holdings. As a result, Top Glove, AMMB Holdings, Gas Malaysia, Hong Leong Industries, MMC, TA Global and Ta Ann Holdings will be deleted from the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Mid 70 Index.

For the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Hijrah Shariah Index, new additions are Petronas Dagangan, UMW Holdings and Serba Dinamik Holdings. As a result, Top Glove, IOI Properties Group and Sapura Energy will be deleted from the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Hijrah Shariah Index.

All constituent changes take effect at the start of business on Monday 24 December 2018 and the next review will take place in June 2019.
