Polyus Gold to list on FTSE indices

Gold mining giant Polyus Gold yesterday said it would be included in two FTSE indices, effective from

15 March, in a move to attract more investors. The firm will be included in the FTSE Global Equity Index Series and the FTSE All World Equity Index Series. Polyus, Russia’s largest gold miner, obtained a premium listing last June, a step towards joining the main FTSE 100 index, although it has not qualified for inclusion due to an insufficient free float of 22 per cent.
