S&P Dow Jones Indices (SPDJI) announced that it has launched the deepest and most extensive suite of African equity indices currently available to investors. Fourteen (14) new equity indices covering thirteen (13) African markets were launched by SPDJI providing investors in Africa, as well as those outside, with a comprehensive offering of indices measuring the performance of the African equity markets.

The launch of the new family of indices comes on the heels of SPDJI’s continuing expansion in Africa. So far this year, SPDJI has launched twenty-nine (29) new indices covering varying segments of the African and South African equity markets.

S&P Dow Jones Indices has a long history of providing relevant benchmarks to African investors,” says Alexander Matturri, CEO of S&P Dow Jones Indices. “Continuing with this year’s launch of fifteen South Africa indices and now strengthened with extensive offering of over a dozen new regional African indices, S&P Dow Jones Indices now offers investors a comprehensive suite of benchmark and tradable equity indices covering the African continent.”

The headline index launched by SPDJI is the S&P All Africa, a comprehensive benchmark for the African continent. The Index combines the constituents of the S&P Pan Africa, S&P South Africa Composite, and S&P Zimbabwe BMI, as well as developed market listed companies that operate purely in or derive a majority of their revenues from the African continent. 

The S&P All Africa serves as the basis for numerous sub-indices including regional benchmark and tradable indices covering different segments of the continental equity market. The other thirteen indices launched include:

  • S&P All Africa ex-South Africa

  • S&P All Africa Capped

  • S&P All Africa ex-South Africa Capped

  • S&P East Africa

  • S&P North Africa
