Ashmore Group Plc (ASHM), a London-based fund manager, and Bunzl Plc (BNZL), the world’s largest distributor of disposable tableware, are being added to the FTSE 100 Index (UKX), while John Wood Group Plc and 3i Group Plc (III) will be deleted.
FTSE Group, the index compiler in London, announced the changes in a press release today. Wood Group is exiting the benchmark gauge for U.K. equities after being added in March this year. The oil-services provider active in Africa and the Middle East will enter the FTSE 250 Index, as will 3i. Changes will be implemented after the close on Sept. 16, according to the statement.
