The S&P Global BMI (Broad Market Index), which comprises the S&P Developed BMI and S&P Emerging BMI, is a comprehensive, rules-based index measuring global stock market performance. It represents the only global index suite with a transparent, modular structure that has been fully float adjusted since its inception in 1989. The S&P Global ex-U.S. BMI is referred to as an international benchmark by U.S. investors since it excludes U.S. companies. It is constructed using the same underlying methodology as the S&P Global BMI but simply excludes all U.S. domiciled stocks.
Various sub-indices of the S&P Global BMI are calculated based on Region, Country, Sector, Industry and Size. These indices are equal weighted, annually rebalanced, include calculation currencies such as USD, AUD, CAD, CHF, EUR, GBP, JPY, S&P Global, and include large, mid, and small-cap securities.
