CAC40

What is France 40?

FCHI is derived from French Stock Market Index CAC 40. This is a benchmark French stock index representing 40 most significant stocks out of 100 highest market caps being traded on Euronext Paris. It is one of the main national indices of the pan-European stock exchange group Euronext.

The CAC 40 takes its name from the Paris Bourse’s early automation system Cotation Assistée en Continu. Although the CAC 40 is almost exclusively composed of French-domiciled companies, about 45% of its listed shares are owned by foreign investors, more than any other main European index.
