FTSE Group ("FTSE"), the award winning global index provider, today announces that it has opened a sales office in Milan in order to provide dedicated support to investors in Italy.
The office, located in Milan's financial centre, will be headed by Sales Manager Andrea Beretta. Andrea's remit is to work closely with local market participants to ensure that FTSE products and services continue to meet the needs of both Italian investors as well as international investors seeking exposure to Italy.
Mark Makepeace, Chief Executive, FTSE Group said, "This is an important step for FTSE as we continue to expand our presence in key investment markets around the world. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with both Borsa Italiana and Italian market participants.
As an independent and internationally recognised index provider, FTSE is uniquely positioned to work with local markets and deliver world-class index solutions. In 2009, FTSE was selected by Borsa Italiana as its preferred index provider, and assumed responsibility for its blue chip index, now known as FTSE MIB. FTSE has also designed and introduced an integrated set of new indices, the FTSE Italia Index Series, calculated in line with international standards, covering a range of segments and sectors and distributed globally on a real-time and end of day basis.
