FTSE All Share Index (and other indices)

The FTSE-A All-share index was introduced on a daily basis in 1962, and consists of more than 900 companies. It is far more representative of the UK stock market than the FTSE 100, although being weighted by market capitalisation, it is still dominated by the major companies. From a level of 100 in January 1962, the index peaked at 3200 at the end of 1999. At the start of 2005, the index was 2400.

There are several other indices produced under the FTSE banner, including those covering different industrial groups or sectors as well as shares grouped by size. (See FTSE 100 index for more information)
