UK Quarterly Review

The constituents of the FTSE UK index series, incorporating the FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and FTSE SmallCap are reviewed quarterly, by FTSE's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)Committee. The reviews are conducted to ensure that each index remains an accurate and up-to-date reflection of the market it measures.

The reviews take place on the Wednesday after the first Friday of the month in March, June, September and December. The values used to make the changes to the indices are taken at the close of business the night before the review.

The quarterly review dates for 2013 are as follows:

Wednesday 6 March

Wednesday 12 June

Wednesday 11 September

Wednesday 11 December

Any changes to the UK indices can only be confirmed by the FTSE Press Office after the EMEA Committee has met, sometime after the market close on the day of the review, and not before.

The FTSE Press Office can help journalists by giving them the indicative positions of companies as at close of business just before the review. We can also tell you if a newly listed company is large enough to be incorporated in an index. However, we cannot speculate or predict any changes to the indices before the EMEA Committee has met, and we cannot confirm if a newly listed company will be eligible to join an index before the Committee has met, as this depends on many other factors other than size.

Changes from the quarterly review are implemented at close on the third Friday of the month of the review.
