Look Beyond Legacy Indexes:
Bring changing markets back into focus

Rapid technology adoption is transforming industries, shifting the dynamics of global markets and investing. Ripe with disruptive challenges, this new environment also presents global investors with opportunities for differentiation. Identifying these opportunities requires a set of tools and an index partner built for this new environment.

The clear alternative to legacy global equity indexes.

Legacy global equity indexes have struggled to evolve with modern markets. Many are unnecessarily complex and costly to manage. Others are significantly less representative of the market segments they were originally designed to cover.  

To navigate this new market environment, investors need a better benchmark — one that not only meets the standards of current indexes but actually addresses these shortcomings.  A truly global index series as comprehensive, investable, transparent, and modular as these legacy products, but built on a modern technology platform by index veterans who understand their constraints and your frustrations with the current choice of providers. 

Introducing FT Wilshire Global Equity Market Series (GEMS): The new world-class global equity index series unconstrained by legacy issues.
