For the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Hijrah Shariah Index, the inclusion is Inari Amertron while the exclusion is Greatech Technology.

All constituent changes take effect on June 24, 2024, with the next review taking place in December 2024.

Meanwhile, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI reserve list, comprising the five largest non-constituents of the index by market capitalisation, are AMMB Holdings, Dialog Group, Gamuda, IOI Properties Group and Malaysia Airports.

The reserve list will be used if one or more constituents are removed from the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI in accordance with the index ground rules during the period up to the next semi-annual review. - Bernama
