The ESE Index is made up of companies that the group has invested directly in, at the date of publication this is every single company that is listed on the European Stock Exchange:
How it works
The Ticker tape works in the same way as the index. It shows a maximum of 8 funding rounds and the increase in price is denoted with a ^ symbol. As example, if a stock was £0.10p at the open and it closed a round at £0.20p then it would be up £0.10p. This would be reflected like this:-
^£0.10p - £0.20p £0.20p
In addition to the above, listed companies and projects featured on the 'Listings page' have two categories within the STANDARD LISTING title.
Where a price has been determined by an equity raise via an ESE registered member then a profile page hosting the price and the rounds as per the above is loaded. If this has not yet taken place then the listing is linked directly to the company's web page.
THE ESE PITCH
ESE has invested in every single new issue currently listed on the European Stock Exchange. In many cases in subsequent rounds also. The ESE Index tallies up the price increase in the equities listed and, based on last round of funding as denoted on the ticker tape, will derive the ESE Index value and increase since inception. ESE Index is up 270% over 5 years.
The ESE Index has grown significantly and consistantly since Jan 2010. It is based on and made up of a collection of investments inside a group of PE Equity funds that now make up the European Stock Exchange and its Index of equity. The value on the left hand side represnts GBP and the equity value based on the last round of funding as per the individual listing above. The 1,000,000 mark is 1 billion GBP.
This data runs until the begining of 2015. It is dependant now on companies actually listed on the exchange and so can increase with a new listings as well as an increase in an individual equities value.
ESE will publish new figures in 2016.
