The FTSE is a worldwide and independent firm run by the London Stock Exchange and The Financial Times and is tasked to manage and create financial indices. Professionals turn to the FTSE everyday for the tools and information they need to develop strategies that would help boost their investment portfolios to the greatest level possible.
Such professionals include, fund managers, investment banks, consultants, brokers, stock exchanges and the like. It maintains partnerships with companies and stock exchanges all over the world, in a bid to create a uniform way of handling international investment. And because the FTSE hosts a plethora of global, regional, fixed income, alternative investment, non-market and governance indices, it is but inevitable that options are part of its roster of instruments traded.
