FTSE MPF Index Series

In 2001 FTSE launched the Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) benchmarks, a tailored solution to meet the complex needs of the Hong Kong investment community. The FTSE All-World Index Series was selected by Watson Wyatt and the Hong Kong Investment Funds Association (HKIFA) as the base universe for a range of country and regional equity indices currency hedged back into Hong Kong dollars as custom benchmarks for the Hong Kong investment community.

Consultations are conducted by FTSE in association with the HKIFA and Towers Watson among members of the HKIFA every three years since launch (2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013). Market consultations ensure the indices provide the most precise benchmarks for the market by accurately reflecting regulatory requirements, permitted investment markets and asset classes as well as accounting for investment restrictions applied to the MPF system.

Market consultations are used to enhance the FTSE MPF Index Series to meet the needs of all interested parties while taking the unique regulatory requirements under the MPF system into consideration. Index enhancements resulting from previous consultation can be downloaded to the right including the enhancements resulting from the 2013 consultation. The next consultation will be conducted in 2016.
