DFT and Tostrams Group sound gong to launch WK2014-index


The Dutch daily Financiële Telegraaf (DFT) sounds the gong to mark the launch of the WK2014-index. The index is an initiative of DFT and Tostrams Group.

The WK2014-index is an index of five Dutch stocks traded on the Amsterdam Exchange, which are sponsoring the Dutch football team during the 2014 Football World Cup in Brazil. DFT (part of Telegraaf Media Group, listed on Euronext, ticker symbol: TMG) will publish the results of the WK2014-index during the tournament. Stocks included in the index are ING (official sponsor of the Dutch soccer team), Ahold (sponsor), Unilever (pizza’s, ice-cream and snacks), Philips (TV-producer) and Heineken (beer and samba shirts). The index starts with a fictional capital of € 100,000 which is proportional invested in shares of the sponsors. CEO of the Tostrams Group, Royce Tostrams, sounds the gong.

The initiators emphasize the airy nature of the index. The index doesn’t give any recommendations or investment advice.
