The Datastream Navigator gives quick access to the key equity indices worldwide.

Select Explore – Equity Indices – Benchmarks at a Glance

The top results are worldwide and regional and then there are key indices for specific countries.

This list of benchmark equity indices can be downloaded into Excel using the icon at the top right.

Bloomberg Professional also gives easy access to key indices through functions WEI (World Equity Indices) and EMEQ (Emerging markets equity indices).

Online resources (for if you don’t have access to Datastream or Bloomberg Professional)

One observation is that a benchmark index may change over time. The benchmark for Italy used to be the Milan MIB 30 Index but this has been replaced by FTSE MIB Index, and for Malaysia the KLSE Composite Index has been replaced by FTSE Bursa Malaysia Klci.
