The Freetrade team ought to be well on top of changes to the index but it seems they haven’t updated the Free/Plus universe to reflect changes to the Index. I haven’t looked at the US indices so there may be changes that haven’t been reflected yet either.
FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider, confirms that ITV will be joining the FTSE 100 Index as a result of the June 2021 quarterly review. In the rebalance, Renishaw will leave the FTSE 100 index and enter the FTSE 250 index.
The rules-driven, impartial quarterly reviews ensure the indexes continue to portray an accurate reflection of the market they represent and form an essential component to the management of the indexes.
The FTSE 250 Index will see the following changes (in alphabetical order):
Entering FTSE 250 Index
Auction Technology Group
Renishaw (down from FTSE 100)
Spire Health Group
Exiting FTSE 250 Index
Foresight Solar Fund
ITV (joining FTSE 100)
JLEN Environmental Assets Group
Sabre Insurance Group
All changes from this review will be implemented at the close of business on Friday, 18 June 2021 and take effect from the start of trading on Monday, 21 June 2021.
