Market Indices

Price history profile of the FTSE All-Share index

The FTSE All-Share index is the aggregation of the FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and FTSE SmallCap indices. Effectively, all those LSE listed companies with a market capitalisation above the lower limit for inclusion in the FTSE SmallCap (in 2015 this was around £80m) are included. The FTSE All-Share is the standard benchmark for measuring the performance of the broad UK market.

The following tables list some statistical data on the yearly, monthly and daily performance of the index.
