Highlights of Index History Timeline

For more than 125 years, IIA members have been administering indices and providing benchmarks. During that time the industry has grown from measuring a few markets to where we stand today – meeting investor demand for benchmarks globally. As the index industry has continued to grow and evolve, it has remained focused on its core values of transparency, reliability and integrity which help provide investors broad access to information on markets. 

In celebration of our tenth anniversary, we asked our member firms to highlight some of the biggest moments in index history, from the launch of the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1896 to the present day.  

Below is a timeline of highlights from index history from the perspective of IIA and our member firms:
