Background

Euromoney Indices (EI) is the index compilation and calculation business of the London listed global financial and business media company Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC.

EI was originally established by James Capel & Co. (Stockbrokers) in 1987 as an index advisory business serving passive equity investment managers.  In 1999, James Capel became part of HSBC Bank plc and the team became known as HSBC Quantitative Techniques, expanding its services into calculating indices across the FX, rates and credit asset classes.

In September 2013, as part of a larger restructuring of HSBC, the Quantitative Techniques business was acquired by Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC and renamed Euromoney Indices.
