Canadian Securities Exchange Launches CSE25 Index
Toronto, Ontario - September 19, 2017 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) The Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") is pleased to announce the introduction of a new index comprised of the securities of the largest companies trading on the exchange.
The CSE25 Index is a subgroup of the CSE Composite Index. The composite index launched in 2015 and includes almost half of the exchange's listed companies and covers over 75% of the trading activity on the exchange. The new index includes the top twenty-five securities by market capitalization contained in the composite index. These companies account for over 50% of the weighting in the larger index and are typically stocks that attract considerable trading volume.
Richard Carleton, CEO, observed that "as the exchange has grown rapidly in terms of trading volumes and market capitalization it is appropriate that we give market participants a benchmark that monitors the performance of our largest and most liquid issues. As the 'exchange for entrepreneurs' we are proud of their success in the Canadian capital markets."
Trading volumes on the CSE have been exceptionally robust in 2016 and 2017. The turnover of the entire market measured by the value of trading divided by the total market cap has averaged 6.6% per month in the year to date, which represents a level of market activity unrivalled in the Canadian exchange space.
A complete list of the constituent securities of the CSE25 Index appears below.
