The FTSE Global China A Inclusion Indexes is a series of benchmarks providing market participants with a choice of how to include China A-shares in global benchmarks. The series also includes FTSE China A Indexes, China A Innovative Enterprises Indexes and China A Stock Connect Indexes. The allocation of China A Shares is adjusted proportional to the changes in the approved quota and is in line with the accessibility available to international investors, or can be customised based on a market participant’s specified QFII/RQFII allocation. This approach covers not only the currently available quota schemes (QFII and RQFII), but also those from any other existing and future schemes that increase market access, such as the Stock Connect programme. Market participants who do not wish to have A-shares in their global benchmarks can continue to use the FTSE Global Equity Index Series, which will remain unchanged.
