Tadawul last month launched four new indices based on company size and public listing performance. The four Size Indices are the Tadawul Large Cap Index, Tadawul Medium Cap Index, Tadawul Small Cap Index and the Tadawul IPO Index.

In addition, the bourse operator said it will introduce the Tadawul IPO index to track the performance of companies listed on the main market within the past five years.

The new index will provide investors with a benchmark to evaluate the performance of their IPOs and a unique opportunity to invest in new and rapidly growing companies.
