Abstract

Index providers are important participants of the contemporary global financial market. This group comprises of diverse entities – e.g. stock exchanges, financial institutions (particularly banks and asset management companies), analytical and research companies as well as financial data providers. The role of index providers increases primarily along with systematically growing importance of index investment instruments. Their decisions significantly affect the allocation of capital, mainly on a microeconomic and macroeconomic scale.
