Companies in the reserve list will replace any constituents that become ineligible as a result of corporate actions, before the next review.

The STI is widely followed by investors as the benchmark for the Singapore market and is used as the basis for a range of financial products including Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), futures, warrants and other derivatives.

The indices are reviewed half-yearly by the independent FTSE ST Index Advisory Committee, in accordance with the index ground rules and reviewed quarterly to fast-track the inclusion of eligible IPO stocks.
