Industry start-up Football INDEX has stated that the “world’s best footballers are a better bet than Britain’s 100 biggest listed companies”.
This morning Football INDEX a footballer performance-based stock market stated that its data showed that the value of 200 of the world’s leading footballers’ has more than doubled since its index launch last October.
The growth of its footballer index is in comparison to the struggling FTSE100 which has entered its worst month in performance since the aftermath of the UK’s decision to vote to leave the European Union.
Presenting stats, Football INDEX noted that a £100 stake tracking its top index made on 2 October, 2015 would now be worth £218.10, whereas the same investment tracking the FTSE 100 would be worth just £107.78.
Adam Cole, Founder and CEO of Football INDEX, said: “As we have seen over the past couple of weeks, investors in traditional financial mechanisms such as the pound and the FTSE100 have had their fingers burnt in the wake of the Brexit vote.
“On the other hand, the Football INDEX continues on an upward trajectory. The index tracker has more than doubled in value since October, and those who have made shrewd selections in individual players have been rewarded with even greater returns.
“With a great deal of financial uncertainty continuing to linger over Europe, now is a great time to get involved in an index which has bucked the trend over the past few months.”
