S&P DJI Adds Palestine, Zimbabwe Indexes

February 24, 2014

In mid-December, S&P Dow Jones Indices said it had begun calculating indexes tracking the frontier markets Zimbabwe and Palestine.

Neither market is included in the S&P Frontier BMI or the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index; instead, they are calculated as stand-alone benchmarks and are included on the index provider’s watch list to be included in the broader benchmarks if they become eligible, according to the press release.

The data for the Palestine indexes date back to September 2012, while the data for the Zimbabwe indexes date back to September 2011.
