Index Calculation of CSE All the indices of the Chittagong Stock Exchange Ltd (CSE) are calculated and maintained following Laspayers Method which was considered as the most transparent and scientific at the time of its inception. Now it is required to adopt a modern and internationally accepted calculation methodology to provide a more sensitive, investable, and tradable and transparently managed Index. The enhanced CSE indices will provide a platform for a wider range of investable and appealing opportunities. The constituents will be free float adjusted with only the investable portion included in the index calculation. Globally, the free float Methodology of index construction is considered to be an industry best practice and all major indexes like MSCI, FTSE and S&P have adopted the same. MSCI, a leading global index, shifted all its indices to the Free-float Methodology in 2002.
