The Ardour Global Index (TICKER: AGIGL) will add eleven new components, effective 6:00 PM (EST) Sunday, September 23. Six stocks will be deleted from the index, raising the number of index components to ninety-eight. The changes result from the index's quarterly rebalancing, which allows for rapid inclusion of recent IPOs.
