SAM AND DOW JONES INDEXES LAUNCH DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY JAPAN 40 INDEX

ZURICH (August 3, 2009) ― SAM, the investment boutique focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing, and Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announce the launch of the Dow Jones Sustainability Japan 40 Index (DJSI Japan 40). The index measures the performance of the largest 40 sustainability leaders in Japan and provides market participants with a highly liquid and tradable sustainability benchmark for Japanese equities. The Dow Jones Sustainability Japan 40 Index is selected and weighted based on the SAM sustainability scores.

“As one of the largest investment markets worldwide, Japan is a crucial player in driving the integration of sustainability criteria into investing. With the DJSI family just about to turn ten years old, we are delighted to add a dedicated Japanese index to our offering and to support the momentum in this market with a benchmark designed according to the SAM sustainability scores,” said Alexander Barkawi, managing director, SAM Indexes.

“Sustainability indexing continues to gain importance as interest grows in responsible investment concepts, particularly in light of the recent volatility and turmoil in financial markets. The Dow Jones Sustainability Japan 40 Index allows market participants to track the performance of Japan’s 40 sustainability leaders selected according to the superior methodology of the Dow Jones Sustainability index series,“ said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Japan 40 Index further complements the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes, which were launched in 1999 and have become a key reference point in Sustainability Investing. The index series comprises 14 broad and blue-chip global, Asia Pacific, North America, U.S., European, and Euro zone benchmarks, as well as additional subset benchmarks.

The DJSI Japan 40 follows the well-established Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes methodology. Component selection as well as index weightings are based on SAM’s unique sustainability scores. The scores are derived from a comprehensive annual assessment of general as well as industry-specific criteria covering issues such as corporate governance, risk management, emissions, water and energy consumption, human capital development, and stakeholder relations.

The index is rebalanced annually in September and calculated in U.S. dollars and Japanese yen.

DOW JONES INDEXES MID-YEAR COMMODITIES OUTLOOK MEDIA SUMMARY

CHICAGO (July 21, 2009) ― The Dow Jones - UBS Commodity Index is up 3.74% so far this year. In terms of sectors, the Dow Jones - UBS Industrial Metals Sub-index has the strongest year-to-date gain of 36.87%. Leading commodity analysts provided their market outlook for the remainder of 2009 this morning at the eighth annual Dow Jones Indexes Mid-Year Commodity Outlook.

Oil prices facing further declines in second half of 2009

“There have been positive signs of a global economic recovery in the first half of 2009. However, these bullish sentiments may only be temporary and in fact we still have a ways to go before the crisis is over. My estimates place crude oil at $35/barrel, heating oil at $150 and RBOB gas at $125 by the end of the year,” said Phil Flynn, senior energy and general market analyst, PFG Best Research.

Grains prices disrupted by economic turmoil, but will stabilize once recovery prevails

“Economic pressures in recent years have helped create the extreme volatility in the commodities markets and will help lead them to a new level of trading as prices for physical and paper assets realign into a more traditional relationship than has been seen in the last couple of decades,” said Jack Scoville, vice president, Price Futures Group. “For grains, prices for these goods are trying to find a new level to trade due to the big changes seen in economics here and around the world. This has proved very disruptive in the short term to many pricing strategies, but many of these traditional methods will become more feasible once the economy as a whole moves past the current period of turmoil and into a sustainable period of moving forward once again.”

Near-term gold, silver prices impacted by fate of U.S. dollar as world’s reserve currency

“Gold is now in its tenth year of a cyclical bull period marked by a shift in economic power from developed countries to oil exporting countries. This upheaval parallels changes in the overall global economy, which is being driven by emerging markets of China, India and Brazil. As developed countries have been hit hard by the credit crisis, monetary flows have moved to alternative hard investments like gold and silver. A key factor that will determine gold and silver prices for the rest of 2009 and into 2010, however, is the viability of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency,” said Stephen Platt, senior account executive, Archer Financial Services.

The Dow Jones — UBS Commodity Index, a diversified and highly liquid benchmark for the commodities markets, is composed of futures contracts on physical commodities and was introduced in 1998. The 19 commodities currently in the Dow Jones – UBS Commodity Index are: aluminum, cattle, coffee, copper, corn, cotton, crude oil, gold, heating oil, hogs, natural gas, nickel, silver, soybeans, soybean oil, sugar, unleaded gas, wheat and zinc. The Dow Jones – UBS Single Commodity Indexes include subindexes for the 19 commodities in the composite index, plus cocoa, platinum, lead and tin.

DOW JONES BRIC 50 INDEX LICENSED TO BNP PARIBAS TO UNDERLIE EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND

NEW YORK (July 10, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announced that the Dow Jones BRIC 50 Index has been licensed to BNP Paribas Asset Management to serve as the basis for an exchange-traded fund (ETF) for the first time. The EasyETF DJ BRIC 50 will be available on NYSE Euronext, Paris today.

The Dow Jones BRIC 50 Index measures the performance of leading blue-chip companies from Brazil, Russia, India and China. The index includes 15 Brazilian companies whose stocks trade on the Bovespa stock exchange, 5 Russian companies whose stocks trade on the RTS and Micex stock exchanges, 15 Indian stocks which trade on the Bombay and National stock exchanges of India, as well as 15 blue-chip stocks for China whose primary operations are in mainland China, but whose stocks trade on the Hong Kong Stock exchange or at a major U.S. stock exchange.

“The emergence of domestic demand, increasing importance in terms of global output and continued decoupling from the developed countries, are among the attractive characteristics of Brazil, Russia, India and China. All of these factors contribute to the growing role these four emerging markets play in the world economy,” said Ricardo Manrique, chief executive officer, STOXX Ltd., the joint venture which is responsible for Dow Jones Indexes' business development in Europe. “The Dow Jones BRIC 50 Index offers market participants a superior tool to capture the performance of these sought-after markets.”

Daniele Tohmé-Adet, head of ETFs and indexed funds, BNP Paribas Asset Management, said: "By licensing the Dow Jones BRIC 50 Index we are adding emerging markets exposure to the EasyETF portfolio. The EasyETF BRIC 50 offers market participants a very flexible access to the BRIC emerging markets within a UCITS-III compliant packaging."

The Dow Jones BRIC 50 Index was launched on June 7, 2006. Daily historical data is available back to December 31, 2002. The index is available in price and total return versions, and is reviewed annually in September. It is weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization, and each component’s weight is capped at 10% of the index’s total free-float market capitalization. The Dow Jones BRIC 50 Index is calculated in U.S. dollar and euro. As of July 9, 2009 the index has been up 36.82% for the year.

DOW JONES INDEXES LAUNCHES DOW JONES ISLAMIC MARKET INTERNATIONAL TITANS 100 INDEX

The index will underlie first Shari’ah-compliant ETF in the U.S.

NEW YORK (July 1, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announced it licensed the Dow Jones Islamic Market International Titans 100 Index to Javelin Investment Management, an investment adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The blue-chip index will underlie the first Shari’ah compliant exchange-traded fund listed in the U.S. The JETS Dow Jones Islamic Market International Index Fund will be available at New York Stock Exchange today.

“The Dow Jones Islamic Market International Titans 100 Index provides markets participants around the world with exposure to the 100 leading Shari’ah-compliant companies outside the United States. Javelin’s decision to select it as the underlying index for the first Shari’ah compliant ETF in the United States enables market participants to complement their existing U.S portfolios with international coverage,” said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes. “The Dow Jones Islamic Market Indexes is a unique index family was the first to market and continues to be the standard of Islamic indexing around the globe.”

Publicly traded partnerships currently in the Dow Jones Total Stock Market Indexes are master limited partnerships (MLPs) and limited liability corporations (LLCs) treated as partnerships for U.S. federal tax purposes. As of June 22, 2009, there are 89 U.S. PTPs with a float-adjusted market capitalization of $81 billion in the Dow Jones Total Stock Market Indexes. These PTPs will be gradually removed from the index over the next two quarters to allow licensees sufficient time to adjust their portfolios. The process will be completed by the fourth quarter rebalancing of the Dow Jones Total Stock Market Indexes on December 21, 2009. PTPs that are eligible for inclusion prior to December 21, 2009 will not be added to the Dow Jones Total Stock Market Indexes.

The Dow Jones Islamic Market International Titans 100 Index measures the stock performance of 100 leading ex-U.S. companies that have passed rules-based screens for Shari’ah compliance. To determine their eligibility for the Dow Jones Islamic Market Indexes, stocks are screened based on their industry type and their financial ratios. Excluded are companies engaged in the following lines of business: alcohol, tobacco, pork-related products, financial services, defense/weapons and entertainment. Also excluded are companies for which the following financial ratios are 33% or more: debt divided by trailing 12-month average market capitalization; cash plus interest-bearing securities divided by trailing 12-month average market capitalization; and accounts receivables divided by trailing 12-month average market capitalization.

Separately, red chip shares of Chinese companies that trade on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange are currently classified as Hong Kong stocks in the Dow Jones Total Stock Market and Dow Jones Global index families. As of June 22, 2009, there are 67 red chip companies with a float-adjusted market capitalization of $139.2 billion in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index. For the Dow Jones World Index, there are 56 red chip companies with a float-adjusted market capitalization of $138 billion.

The U.S. dollar denominated Dow Jones Islamic Market International Titans 100 Index is free-float market capitalization weighted and each component’s weight is capped at 10% of the index to avoid overweight of one single stock. The index composition is reviewed annually in June. The index is also reviewed on an ongoing basis to account for corporate actions such as mergers, de-listings or bankruptcies. Year-to-date, the index is up 10.34% through June 30, 20091.

The Dow Jones Islamic Market Indexes were introduced in 1999 as the first indexes intended to measure the global universe of investable equities that pass screens for Shari’ah compliance. With more than 100 indexes, the series is the most comprehensive family of Islamic market measures and includes regional, country, and industry indexes, all of which are subsets of the Dow Jones Islamic Market Index. An independent Shari’ah Supervisory Board counsels Dow Jones Indexes on matters related to the compliance of index-eligible companies.

There are currently more than 150 licensees with more than US$7 billion in assets benchmarked to the Dow Jones Islamic Market Indexes.

DOW JONES INDEXES, LVA INDICES AND PROVEEDOR INTEGRAL DE PRECIOS TEAM UP TO LAUNCH FIXED-INCOME INDEXES FOR LATIN AMERICA

Five indexes licensed to Barclays Global Investors for exchange-traded funds

NEW YORK (June 24, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, LVA Indices (LVA), the leading fixed income index and pricing provider in Chile, and Proveedor Integral de Precios (PIP), a leading index and pricing provider in Latin America, today announced that they have signed a joint marketing agreement to help raise the profile and contribute to the transparency of the region’s growing fixed-income market. Under the agreement, the parties will calculate, market and license the Dow Jones LATixx Indexes, also launching today. The new indexes measure corporate and government bonds in major Latin American countries.

The first 10 indexes in the Dow Jones LATixx Index series represent the bond markets in Mexico and Chile. The five Dow Jones LATixx Indexes for Mexico have been licensed by Barclays Global Investors (BGI) to serve as the basis for exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The ETFs are expected to be available in July.

This is the parties’ first step to establishing the Dow Jones LATixx Indexes as the region’s prime fixed-income index family. The partners expect to expand their initiative to include additional fixed-income indexes for markets such as Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Argentina.

"The bond market is the primary and most actively used investment vehicle in Latin America. Dow Jones Indexes has teamed up with LVA and PiP, two of the continent’s leading fixed-income experts, to create an index family that provides market participants with diversified exposure to this growing and exciting asset class. Furthermore, the Dow Jones LATixx Indexes can serve as the basis of passive financial products, such as the ETFs being launched by BGI," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

"Not only will we produce indexes that can be replicated in financial products, we also aim to create full families of indexes for each country, covering the entire range of instruments issued in their local fixed income markets. These broad market indexes will open up new possibilities for market participants, allowing the application of global best practices in measuring and analyzing portfolio risk and performance. Building such benchmarks for local fixed income investments has the added benefit of greater transparency and makes the market more attractive for foreign investors," said Gregorio González, CEO, LVA Indices.

"When we started to think about and discuss this partnership, we always saw the added value that the three of us together would bring to the LATAM region: experience, reputation, specialization, and commitment. In a few words I would say that our business culture is aligned. I am convinced that this will be a successful project and we will be moving beyond the expectations and needs of our clients. There is more to come, for sure…," said Gerardo Luengas, chief executive officer, PiP

The five indexes for the Mexican fixed-income market measure the performance of specific types of government-issued bonds. The five new indexes for the Chilean fixed-income market include both government and corporate bonds.

The Dow Jones LATixx Indexes are reviewed on a monthly basis and daily back-tested historical data is available back to December 31, 20041 for the Mexican indexes, and back to January 1, 20011 for the Chilean indexes. Further information can be found on the Dow Jones LATixx Indexes Web site at www.latixx.com.

GLOBAL MARKETS PANEL MEDIA SUMMARY DOW JONES INDEXES PRESS BRIEFING

LONDON (Jun. 17, 2009) ― While global equity markets have slightly improved this year a full recovery of the markets and the economy is not expected any time soon. Since September 15, 2008 the Dow Jones Global Titans 50 fell 21.10%, while year-to-date the index is up 0.09% through June 15, 2009.

The economy will remain challenged throughout 2010 and recovery could be impacted by various factors and developments according to a panel of leading economic and market experts hosted by Dow Jones Indexes this morning in London.

Public debt could slow economic recovery in US and UK

"Globalization was beneficial for both developed and especially emerging market economies over the decade to 2006. But the last two years have shown that globalization also has a dark side as it allowed the build-up of large global trade imbalances and corresponding capital flows from the East that help to inflate unsustainable credit and housing market bubbles in the West. Once the crisis hit in the U.S. housing market initially, globalization of financial markets also meant that the credit crunch virus spread very rapidly around the world," said John Hawksworth, head of macroeconomics at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. "Looking ahead, we expect a fall of around 2.5% in world GDP in 2009 but then a modest recovery to global growth of around 1% in 2010, led by China and India. I am more cautious about the prospects for Europe, including the euro zone countries for which we project a fall in GDP of more than 4% in 2009 followed by continued negative GDP growth of around -0.5% in 2010. In the longer term, the need to deal with rapidly increasing public debt will weigh down on the speed of economic recovery in the U.S., the U.K. and other high deficit countries and could also dampen the return on government bonds relative to equities over the next few years," he said.

Long term trend towards global products

"Eurex has been experiencing increasing ability and willingness by clients and market participants to seek global opportunities. While volume in truly global contracts is still small, in the moment we see increasing assets under management in products such as global exchange-traded funds. Therefore we are convinced that products like Dow Jones Global Titans 50 futures can flourish," said Brendan Bradley, global head of product strategy, Eurex. "We expect market participants to bi-laterally agree to deals that give global exposure and report the transaction to Eurex for clearing purposes, thereby mitigating the counterparty credit risk," he added. As a trend towards globalization Mr. Bradley further cited Eurex’ experience with the development of the Dow Jones STOXX sector business from a euro zone to a pan-European demand to which Eurex reacted by introducing global sector products last year.

Emerging markets to do better than developed economies

"The long term outlook is for the economies and markets of emerging countries to continue to out-perform developed countries, the problems of which include large fiscal deficits, the threat of inflation and inflexible economies. This out-performance is not reflected in the asset allocation of the typical OECD-centric investment institution. However, we believe that a long equity up-cycle started earlier this year and that, over the next ten years, equities will out-perform government bonds by a wide margin, despite the continuing economic problems" said Max King, portfolio manager and strategist, Investec Asset Management.

The Global Markets Panel was hosted by Dow Jones Indexes today to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Dow Jones Global Titans 50 Index. The index was launched in July 1999 and represents the largest multinational companies worldwide. The Dow Jones Global Titans 50 Index is available in price and total return versions, and calculated in U.S. dollar. It is reviewed annually in June. The index is weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization, and each component's weight is capped at 10% of the index's total free-float market capitalization.

NEW YORK (Jun. 4, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today launched the Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index. The index tracks the performance of the top 30 Hong Kong listed companies by dividend yield.

The Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index is designed to underlie investment products such as exchange-traded funds, structured products, futures and options or serve as a benchmark for mutual funds. The index already has been licensed to underlie an index fund.

"The Dow Jones and Dow Jones STOXX Select Dividend index series follow a unique methodology which weights components by dividend yield, not market capitalization. This purely fundamentally-weighted index concept has proven effective in measuring the performance of a basket of high dividend-paying stocks," said Michael A. Petronella, president at Dow Jones Indexes. "The Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index, which tracks the top 30 dividend-yielding companies in Hong Kong, is strictly rules-based to ensure transparency, accuracy and replicability."

To be eligible for inclusion in the Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index, a component must have paid dividends in each of the past three years and a five-year average payout of less than 85%. In addition, the company�s dividend-per-share in the previous year has to be higher than or equal to its three-year average. Each stock also must have a minimum daily average trading volume of US$3 million over the previous three months.

The Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index is weighted based on dividend yield. The weight of individual components in the index is restricted to 15%. The entire index composition of the Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index is reviewed annually in June. In addition, the index is subject to a quarterly review process in March, September and December, during which components with a dividend program at significant risk are removed. In such cases, the incoming company is added at the weight of the departing company.

The Dow Jones Hong Kong Select Dividend 30 Index is available in both price and total return versions, which are calculated in Hong Kong dollars and U.S. dollars. Daily historical index values are available back to December 31, 2004, with a base value set at 100.

The Dow Jones and Dow Jones STOXX Select Dividend Index series consists of 24 indexes for Asia, Asia/Pacific and EPAC regions, as well as the following countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K., the U.S. and the Dow Jones Global Select Dividend Index; the Dow Jones STOXX Select Dividend 30 Index, Dow Jones EURO STOXX Select Dividend 30 Index, Dow Jones STOXX NORDIC Select Dividend 20 Index, Dow Jones STOXX EU Enlarged Select Dividend 15 Index, Dow Jones STOXX Americas Select Dividend 40 Index, Dow Jones STOXX Asia/Pacific Select Dividend 30 Index and the Dow Jones STOXX Global Select Dividend 100 Index.

DOW JONES INDEXES AND THE FEDERATION OF EURO-ASIAN STOCK EXCHANGES TO DESIGN REGIONAL INDEXES

NEW YORK (Jun. 3, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, and the Federation of Euro-Asian Stock Exchanges (FEAS) plan to launch the Dow Jones FEAS Indexes on Friday, June 5. This is the first time indexes are created to measure the performance of companies across the Euro-Asian region. The three indexes that are being launched on Friday are a composite, and two regional sub-indexes. The Dow Jones FEAS Indexes are designed to underlie index-linked investment products such as funds and structured products.

Dow Jones FEAS Composite Index currently includes component stocks of 10 of the 32 member states of the Federation of Euro-Asian Stock Exchanges. The exchanges included are Abu Dhabi (UAE), Amman (Jordan), Bahrain (Kingdom of Bahrain), Belgrade (Serbia), Bulgaria (Bulgaria), Istanbul (Turkey), Karachi (Pakistan), Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia), Muscat (Oman), and Zagreb (Croatia).

The Dow Jones FEAS Middle East/Caucasus Index currently includes stocks from the following four FEAS member exchanges: Abu Dhabi, Amman, Bahrain, and Muscat.

The Dow Jones FEAS South East Europe Index measures the performance of companies in the following five FEAS member exchanges: Bulgaria, Zagreb, Macedonia, Belgrade and Istanbul.

"FEAS has promoted the development of emerging stock exchanges across the Euro-Asian region and has supported a transparent market environment between FEAS members to advance trading in these markets," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes. "The introduction of the Dow Jones FEAS Indexes will support this mission as the index provides market participants with easy access to a unique combination of emerging and frontier market stocks."

"I can clearly remember the day that we founded FEAS, with merely 12 regional exchanges, fourteen years ago. Today, FEAS covers a vast area from Mongolia in the East to Croatia in the West, with 32 stock exchange members and seven affiliate members. At FEAS, we attach great value to visibility and transparency, and the Dow Jones FEAS Indexes, designed to measure the performance of companies across the Euro-Asian region, is the first of its kind. The three indexes currently cover around one third of the companies traded on the FEAS member exchanges, and we hope to increase both the types of indexes and also the number of constituent companies in the near future. I believe the Dow Jones FEAS Indexes will significantly contribute to promoting the growing businesses in the Euro-Asian region," said Huseyin Erkan, chairman & chief executive officer, Istanbul Stock Exchange & president, FEAS.

The Dow Jones FEAS Indexes are designed to cover 95% of the free-float market capitalization of each country in the respective index. In addition to float-adjusted market capitalization, components are selected based on readily available prices. The indexes are calculated and disseminated in euro and U.S. dollar and weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization.

The Dow Jones FEAS Indexes are rebalanced quarterly when additional FEAS member exchanges will be added.

DOW JONES TO CHANGE COMPOSITION OF THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE

Two Component Stocks Will be Replaced

NEW YORK (Jun. 1, 2009) ― Two stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average will be replaced, Dow Jones & Company announced.

The Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV) is taking the place of Citigroup, Inc. (C) and Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) is going in for General Motors Corp. (GM). Both changes are effective with the opening of trading on June 8, 2009.

"The parlous state of GM has left us with no choice but to remove it from The Dow. A bankruptcy filing immediately disqualifies a stock regardless of a company's history or its role as a cultural icon," said Robert Thomson, managing editor of The Wall Street Journal and editor-in-chief for all of Dow Jones. "We were reluctant to remove Citigroup at the height of the financial frenzy, but it is clear that the bank is in the midst of a substantial restructuring which will see the government with a large and ongoing stake. We genuinely hope that once the bank has refashioned itself that we will again be able to consider it for inclusion -- Citigroup is a renowned institution, not only in this country, but around the world."

The Journal's Managing Editor oversees the makeup of "The Dow," which Charles H. Dow created as a 12-stock index in May 1896 and today is the best-known stock market barometer in the world.

"The selection of Travelers, a property and casualty insurance company, is intended to restore the financials industry to full representation in The Dow," Mr. Thomson said. "When we removed American International Group, Inc. last fall, we substituted Kraft Foods, Inc. rather than another financial stock because the financials industry was then in great upheaval. That choice left financials underrepresented in The Dow, a deficiency we are now correcting."

Mr. Thomson said that Cisco is a fitting addition "because its communications and computer-networking products are vital to an economy and culture still adapting to the Information Age -- just as automobiles were essential to America in the 20th Century."

John A. Prestbo, editor and executive director of Dow Jones Indexes, said both Citigroup and GM were retained as Dow components in recent months despite their low prices. "In our judgment, the stocks until now helped the Dow Jones Industrial Average tell the daily story of the stock market. The extraordinary conditions of the severe bear market and recession kept these stocks relevant and representative for a longer period than might have been the case in more normal times."

GM ends an 83-year run as a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. GM was added twice, first for about a year and a half in 1915 and second on Aug. 31, 1925. The only current component with a longer history is General Electric Co. (GE). GE was in the original Dow in 1896 but was removed and restored a couple of times; it has been a component steadily since 1907.

Citigroup joined the Dow on March 17, 1997, as Travelers. Ironically, Travelers merged with Citicorp to form Citigroup in 1998, creating what was then termed a "financial supermarket." Citigroup spun off Travelers in 2002.

The changes won't cause any disruption in the level of the index. The divisor used to calculate The Dow from its components' prices on their respective home exchanges will be changed prior to the opening on June 8. This procedure prevents any distortion in The Dow's reflection of the U.S. stock market.

For more information, see the web site of Dow Jones Indexes at http://www.djaverages.com. The Dow Jones Transportation Average, Dow Jones Utility Average and Dow Jones Composite Average also are members of the Dow Jones Averages family.

DOW JONES INDEXES UNVEILS ECONOMIC STIMULUS INDEX

New index seeks to capture momentum of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

NEW YORK (May 27, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announce the launch of the Dow Jones U.S. Economic Stimulus Index. The index measures the performance of leading U.S. companies drawn from industries that are expected to receive stimulus dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The 50-stock Dow Jones U.S. Economic Stimulus Index seeks to capture the "momentum" of the U.S. economic stimulus package and its effect on the largest and most liquid stocks in six economic segments.

"The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act represents a significant strategic investment in the U.S. economy and as such is anticipated to have a positive impact on the stock market, which is an indicator of economic health," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes. "Applying a systematic methodology and blue-chip approach to the segments of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act makes the Dow Jones U.S. Economic Stimulus Index an attractive underlying for investment products such as exchange-traded funds."

Dow Jones Indexes mapped the key areas targeted by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to six core categories: Alternative Energy, Construction & Materials, Energy Grid, Environment, Technology, Telecom/Internet.

To be eligible for inclusion, a company must be a component of the Dow Jones U.S. Total Stock Market Index, must have a three-month minimum average daily trading volume of $5 million and must be categorized in one of the six categories determined by Dow Jones Indexes. Within each of the six categories, stocks are selected top-down based on float-adjusted market capitalization until the target component count per category is achieved. The number of components is determined based on the percentage of stimulus dollars allocated to each category. Of the 50 index components 20 are derived from the category Construction & Materials, 10 components from Alternative Energy, and five components from each of the remaining categories Energy Grid, Environment, Technology and Telecom/Internet.

The top five index components by free-float market capitalization are Microsoft Corp. (category: Technology), AT&T Inc. (category: Telecom/Internet), General Electric Co. (category: Alternative Energy), International Business Machines Corp. (category: Technology), and Cisco Systems Inc. (category: Telecom/Internet).

As of May 26, 2009 the Dow Jones U.S. Economic Stimulus Index is up 1.62% since its inception on December 31, 20081.

DOW JONES INDEXES EXPANDS SECTOR TITANS INDEX SERIES TO INCLUDE EMERGING MARKETS COUNTRIES

New indexes have been licensed to underlie suite of exchange-traded funds

NEW YORK (May 21, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announced the launch of the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Indexes. The new index series measures the performance of leading emerging-market companies in each of 11 sectors.

The new indexes have been licensed to Emerging Global Advisors, LLC to serve as the basis of exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Two ETFs based on the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Oil & Gas Titans 30 Index and Dow Jones Emerging Markets Metals & Mining 30 Index are available today on NYSE Arca.

The Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans index family includes a composite index, 10 industry indexes as defined by the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB) and one customized index for metals and mining.

"It is important that market participants continue to identify new avenues of diversification in these challenging economic times. The Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Indexes take a sector-based approach to tracking emerging-markets stocks, and measure the performance of the largest and most liquid companies in these developing countries," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

The index universe is defined as all stocks in the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Total Stock Market Index, which is a broad benchmark of companies in 35 emerging market countries. Stocks are first ranked by float-adjusted market capitalization, and the top 60 companies per Industry or Supersector are chosen for the selection list.

The companies in each selection list are then ranked by float-adjusted market capitalization, revenue and net profit. A final rank is determined by weighting the ranks for float-adjusted market capitalization at 60%, revenue at 20% and net profit at 20%. The top 30 companies by final rank are selected as index components.

The Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Composite Index represents the top 10 companies by float-adjusted market capitalization of each of the 10 industry indexes.

As of May 20, 2009, the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Composite Index is up 38.87% year to date.

The Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Indexes are reviewed annually in June. The indexes are weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization. Within each index, individual stocks� weightings are capped at 10% of the index�s total float-adjusted market capitalization. Estimated daily back-tested history is available back to December 30, 2005.

For more information, please visit the Dow Jones Indexes Web site at www.djindexes.com.

The Dow Jones Emerging Markets Sector Titans Indexes were first published on May 21, 2009. All estimated daily historical closing prices prior to that date are based on back-testing (i.e., calculations of how the index might have performed in the past if it had existed). Backtested performance information is purely hypothetical and is solely for informational purposes. Backtested performance does not represent actual performance, and past performance is not indicative of future results.

DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE TO SERVE AS BASIS FOR TWO INDEX FUNDS IN JAPAN

NEW YORK (May 18, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, announced today that the Dow Jones Industrial Average (the Dow), the world's longest running stock market indicator, has been licensed to Chuo Mitsui Asset Management, Japan to underlie two index funds.

Both index funds will use the Dow Jones Industrial Average TTM (JPY), a Japanese Yen-based version of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

"The Dow Jones Industrial Average is the most widely cited U.S. market indicator worldwide. As international market participants seek to diversify their investments globally the Dow 30 is an excellent and obvious way to track the U.S. market. The Dow Jones Industrial Average calculated in Japanese Yen broadens the range of options for market participants in Japan to gain exposure to the performance of 30 leading companies in the United States," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

"With these two new produ1ct offerings tracking the Dow Jones Industrial Average we further compliment our line-up of index-based investment funds available to the Japanese investment community. We selected the Dow as underlying due to its great popularity amongst Japanese investors as the major stock market indicator for the United States," said Mr. Yasuhiro Inzen, manager business planning at Chuo Mitsui Asset Management, Japan.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a price-weighted index that measures 30 of the biggest and most widely recognized blue-chip stocks in the United States. Originally created by Charles Dow in 1896 to gauge the new industrial economy, the term "industrial" is broadly defined so the index accurately reflects the performance of the U.S. stock market today, covering such diverse industries as financial services, technology, retail, entertainment and consumer goods.

When the Dow was initially created, its value was calculated by adding up the component stock prices and dividing by the number of components. To calculate the index today, the sum of the stock prices are divided by an index divisor, which is used to adjust for stock splits and other corporate actions that may affect the index's composition.

SELIGSON & CO FUND MANAGEMENT SIGNS LICENSE FOR FIRST INDEX FUND ON THE DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY ASIA PACIFIC INDEX

ZURICH (Apr. 15, 2009) ― SAM, the sustainability investing specialist, and Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announced that Seligson & Co Fund Management has signed a license for the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index (DJSI Asia Pacific). This is the first index fund worldwide to track this new benchmark. The Seligson & Co Asia Index Fund expands the asset manager's existing range of two sustainability funds based on the Dow Jones STOXX Sustainability (DJSI STOXX) and Dow Jones Sustainability North America Indexes (DJSI North America).

The DJSI Asia Pacific was introduced earlier this year to track the sustainability leaders within the developed markets in Asia Pacific. The index includes the 20% most sustainable companies out of the largest 600 stocks in the region by free float market capitalization. The underlying SAM assessment covers a variety of issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and human capital. The analysis reflects the growing importance investors attribute to sustainability criteria around the globe.

"We are delighted to expand our existing relationship with Seligson and to see them add our new DJSI Asia Pacific to their offering. SAM and Dow Jones Indexes launched this benchmark earlier this year as the complementary piece in our joint index range to cover all three major investment regions. Finland is an exciting market for sustainability investing and we are delighted to provide Seligson with the benchmarks to tap into this opportunity." said Alexander Barkawi, managing director, SAM Indexes.

"Sustainability is continuously moving up investor agendas. Growing interest in the integration of long-term economic, environmental and social factors among Finnish private and institutional investors is a case in point for this. We see significant potential in sustainability investing and we are convinced that the DJSI family provides us with the best platform to meet client demand in this field," says Ari Kaaro, managing director, Seligson & Co Fund Management.

Introduced in 1999, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes are the longest-running benchmarks that track the performance of sustainability leaders on a global scale. Today, the DJSI family is used by asset managers in 16 countries as benchmark and investment universe for a wide variety of financial products including mutual funds, separate accounts, structured products and ETFs.v

DOW JONES INDEXES INTRODUCES TOTAL STOCK MARKET INDEX FAMILY

NEW YORK (Apr. 1, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announced the introduction of the Dow Jones Total Stock Market Indexes, which will serve as its primary global benchmark family. The new index series is the successor to the Dow Jones Wilshire Index family.

The Dow Jones Total Stock Market Index family is identical in all aspects to the former Dow Jones Wilshire index family, including methodology, composition and historical data back to 1987. The Dow Jones Total Stock Market Indexes are available on the same data vendors and distribution platforms as used previously, which will help ensure a seamless transition for index users.

"The Dow Jones Total Stock Market index family is the foundation of our index offerings allowing us to provide the marketplace with a globally consistent, integrated and complete selection of equity indexes. The new index series is designed to serve as a benchmark for pensions and institutions and follows the same rigorous rules-based methodology and data quality standards that apply to all indexes bearing the Dow Jones name. Dow Jones offers three distinct, yet integrated equity index categories: global institutional benchmark indexes, broad-based investable indexes, and blue-chip indexes that track the largest and most liquid companies in a particular market. We believe our offerings maximize our ability to respond to market demands with greater flexibility and service," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

The Dow Jones Wilshire Indexes are being discontinued as Dow Jones Indexes has elected to allow its business relationship with Wilshire Associates to expire on March 31, 2009.

The Dow Jones U.S. Total Stock Market Index measures the performance of all U.S. equities with readily available prices. The Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index measures the performance of more than 12,000 companies in 65 countries. The Dow Jones Global Select Real Estate Indexes measure the performance of publicly traded real estate securities that represent the ownership and operation of commercial or residential real estate.

As of the close of trading of March 31, 2009, the Dow Jones U.S. Total Stock Market Index measures 4,495 stocks with a float-adjusted market capitalization of US$ 8.5 trillion. Worldwide, the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index tracked 12,119 stocks with a float-adjusted market capitalization of US$19.5 trillion.

SAM, DOW JONES INDEXES AND KPC ANNOUNCE PLANS TO LAUNCH DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY KOREA INDEX

ZURICH (Mar. 31, 2009) ― SAM, the sustainability investing specialist, Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, and the Korea Productivity Center (KPC), the agency tasked to increase productivity within Korean industry, today announced their plans to launch a dedicated sustainability index for Korea.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Korea Index is scheduled to go live in the fourth quarter 2009 and will be designed to track the sustainability leaders among Korea's largest 200 companies by free-float market capitalization. The announcement follows the recent establishment of Korea's presidential commission for green growth and the approval of a new "Low Carbon and Green Growth Bill" by Korea's cabinet at the end of February.

Like all Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes, components for this benchmark will be selected based on SAM's comprehensive analysis of economic, environmental and social performance. Covering a variety of issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and human capital, the analysis reflects the growing importance investors attribute to sustainability criteria around the globe. Invitations for participation in SAM's annual sustainability assessment will be sent to the companies in early April. Dow Jones Indexes will calculate and disseminate the new benchmark while KPC will promote the index among Korean corporations and investors.

The announcement of the new index coincides with a growing recognition among asset owners, regulators and policymakers worldwide that financial markets need to shift focus from short-termism to long-term thinking.

"KPC has played a pivotal role in the development of Korea's economy during the last decades. We are convinced that sustainability has to become an integral part of this development moving forward and that financial markets are an essential player in that context. Providing markets with a solid and thoroughly researched benchmark is an essential step towards this objective. SAM and Dow Jones Indexes are the best possible partners for us to move ahead on this track," said Chun-Seon Lee, managing director, Korea Productivity Center.

"In spite of the current crisis, Asia Pacific will remain home to some of the most vibrant and rapidly developing financial markets worldwide. Korea is a case in point for this. The new Dow Jones Sustainability Korea Index will allow market participants to reflect the sustainability dimension within this momentum by offering a transparent and reliable benchmark of the country's sustainability leaders," said John A. Prestbo, editor and executive director, Dow Jones Indexes.

"The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes provide reference points for investors and corporations alike. A growing number of asset owners is using the DJSI family for their investments and more and more companies define index inclusion as a corporate goal. As a result, the indexes offer companies an incentive to strive for constant sustainability improvements. We are delighted that KPC has chosen the DJSI family to leverage this dynamic on a national basis in Korea and thus to support the sustainability momentum within this important market," said Alexander Barkawi, managing director, SAM Indexes.

NEW YORK (Mar. 11, 2009) ― Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, and the South Asian Federation of Exchanges (SAFE) today launched the Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index and the Dow Jones SAFE Pakistan Index. This is the first time indexes are created to measure the performance of blue-chip companies in five of the eight member states of SAFE. The five member states included in the Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index are: India, Bangladesh, Mauritius, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The Dow Jones SAFE Indexes are designed to underlie index-linked investment products such as funds, exchange-traded funds, structured products, futures and options. The Dow Jones SAFE Pakistan Index has been licensed to Arif Habib Investment Management Ltd., the premier Pakistani asset management company, to serve as the basis of an index tracker fund.

"South Asia is home to some of the most rapidly evolving financial markets worldwide. By further developing securities markets and aiming at their regional and international integration the South Asian Federation of Exchanges has been contributing significantly to these developments. The Dow Jones SAFE Indexes now provide market participants with accurate, transparent and reliable performance measures of leading companies in this region. These indexes are yet another example of Dow Jones Indexes' commitment to index excellence, particularly in so-called frontier markets," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

"We are very delighted to launch the Dow Jones SAFE 100 index jointly with Dow Jones Indexes, well-known for reliable and world-class indexes. As a representative body of South Asian Exchanges, our effort had been to present the entire region as one investment destination and the launch of the Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index is an effort in the same direction. The index showcases the region as one asset class and can thanks to its superior methodology be used as an underlying tool for investment products on national and international level alike," said Aftab Ahmad Ch., managing director and CEO, Islamabad Stock Exchange & secretary general SAFE.

The Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index measures the performance of the 50 largest Indian stocks and the 50 largest stocks trading in Bangladesh, Mauritius, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Thus, the index includes 3 Bangladeshi, 5 Mauritian, 39 Pakistani and 3 Sri Lankan stocks and was down -35.5% from its base date on December 31, 2005 as of March 9, 2009.1

The Dow Jones SAFE Pakistan Index measures the performance of the Pakistani stocks in the Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index. As of March 9, 2009, the index contains 39 components. The Dow Jones SAFE Pakistan Index was, on March 9, 2009, down -46.36% from its base of 1000 on December 31, 2005 as of March 9, 2009.1

The Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index is calculated in U.S. dollars. The index is weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization. The weighting of each country in the index is capped at 50%, each component is capped at 10% subsequently.

The Dow Jones SAFE Pakistan Index is calculated in Pakistan rupees. Its component weights reflect the relative float-adjusted market capitalization weights of Pakistani stocks in the Dow Jones SAFE 100 Index.

Dow Jones Global Titans

In the Dow Jones Global Titans 50 Index, Citigroup Inc. (United States, Banks, C) will be replaced by Sanofi-Aventis S.A. (France, Health Care, 12057.FR). Citigroup Inc. is being deleted due to the "Extraordinary Component Removal Rule." The rule is applied when the float-adjusted market capitalization of a current component in the Dow Jones Global Titans 50 Index falls below the largest 200 companies by float-adjusted market capitalization in the stock selection universe. This rule allows component changes to the Dow Jones Global Titans 50 Index to be implemented outside of the index's regular annual review in June.

SAM AND DOW JONES INDEXES LAUNCH DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY ASIA PACIFIC INDEXES

Theodoor Gilissen signs first license for new index

ZURICH (Mar. 3, 2009) ― SAM, the sustainability investing specialist, and Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, today announced the launch of the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific and the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific 40 indexes. A first license for the DJSI Asia Pacific has already been signed by Theodoor Gilissen, a leading Dutch private bank, to manage a sustainability-driven separate account.

Like all Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI), the new offering is based on SAM's comprehensive analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance. The assessment accounts for general as well as industry specific sustainability criteria for each of the 57 DJSI sectors and covers a variety of issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and human capital.

"This launch is another significant milestone to advance our joint index family. With the addition of Asia Pacific benchmarks, the DJSI series now comprises dedicated indexes for each of the three major investment regions, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Americas. As many market participants allocate their assets across this regional split, today's expansion of our index family completes the DJSI's coverage of regional developed equity markets," said Michael A. Petronella, president, Dow Jones Indexes.

"Notwithstanding the current economic turmoil, sustainability remains firmly on investor agendas. As many commentators have pointed out during the last months, nature doesn't do bailouts. Issues such as climate change, water scarcity and risk management will continue to drive corporate success � and increasingly so. Our new Asia Pacific index allows market participants to reflect this momentum for a key investment region," said Alexander Barkawi, managing director, SAM Indexes.

The new Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index (DJSI Asia Pacific) tracks the top 20% in terms of the SAM analysis out of the largest 600 companies in the developed Asia Pacific markets. The current composition includes a total of 122 sustainability leaders � 77 from Japan, 30 from Australia, 7 from South Korea, 3 each from Hong Kong and Singapore, and 2 from Taiwan. As a subset of this broad index, the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific 40 Index (DJSI Asia Pacific 40) measures the performance of the largest 40 sustainability leaders in the region. In contrast to the DJSI Asia Pacific which is weighted according to free float market capitalization, the DJSI Asia Pacific 40 is weighted based on SAM's sustainability scores. Both indexes are rebalanced annually in September.

DOW JONES ISLAMIC MARKET INDIA INDEX LICENSED TO SERVE AS BENCHMARK FOR THE FIRST TIME

NEW YORK (Mar. 3, 2009) ― Jones Hedge Fund Indexes, Inc. (DJHFI), today announced that it has resumed publication as of today of the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Equity Long/Short and Equity Market Neutral Strategy Benchmarks.

Both Benchmarks were halted on November 3, 2008, based on a joint decision made by DJHFI and the investment manager of the managed account platform that supports the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks. The halt was a result of temporary measures taken by the investment manager to reduce the risk profiles of certain managers who manage assets within this investment platform. The investment manager has determined these temporary measures are no longer necessary. Those measures have diminished, allowing managers to resume their respective strategies.

DJHFI will publish the price history of these two benchmarks, for the period between the halt and resumption of publication, based on the actual performance of the portfolios, which will reflect the temporarily reduced investment exposure of the portfolios.

The publication of the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Convertible Arbitrage Strategy Benchmark was halted on January 2, 2009, and remains suspended until further notice. The Dow Jones Hedge Fund Balanced Portfolio Indexes (DJHFBPIs) were suspended on November 3, 2008, and remain suspended until further notice. No changes have been made to the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks for Distressed Securities, Event Driven and Merger Arbitrage.

Launched in November 2003, the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks measure individual hedge fund strategies, including Equity Market Neutral, Convertible Arbitrage (currently suspended), Distressed Securities, Merger Arbitrage, Event Driven and Equity Long/Short1. DJHFI provides style-pure, hedge fund strategy indexes that exhibit highly correlated component returns. The methodologies and components underlying the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks are available on the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Indexes Web site at www.djhedgefundindexes.com.

DOW JONES INDEXES/STOXX LTD. 2009 GLOBAL ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

LEADING FINANCE EXPERTS PREDICT 2009 TO BE MARKED BY GLOBAL RECESSION, U.S. DOLLAR STRENGTH, DECLINING COMMODITY PRICES

NEW YORK (Jan. 13, 2009) ― Both developed and emerging market economies will fall into a global recession in 2009, as commodity prices continue their decline and the U.S. dollar recovers ground against the euro, said leading finance experts at the seventh annual Dow Jones Indexes/ STOXX Ltd. Global Economic Outlook.

Recession in the U.S. to Continue Through 2010

"Consumer spending has contracted for the first time in two decades; unemployment rates will reach eight percent by mid-2009; and we still have not seen the bottoming out of the housing market. The U.S. economy is in the middle of the longest and most severe recession in the last fifty years. We expect U.S. GDP will continue to contract throughout 2009 for a cumulative output loss of five percent and a recession that will last around two years," said Christian Menegatti, managing editor and lead analyst, RGEMonitor.com.

Euro to Outperform While U.S. Dollar to Strengthen Against Major Currencies

"The outlook for the U.S. dollar in 2009 is favorable. While the euro is expected to outperform the greenback, and virtually all other currencies, early in the year on interest rate differentials, the dollar will remain strong and stable against other major and peripheral currencies," said Michael Woolfolk, senior currency strategist, Bank of New York Mellon. "On the tenth anniversary of the euro's launch, the European currency is expected to reach parity against the British sterling—an important psychological benchmark in terms of its international status. By mid-year, the European Central Bank is expected to follow all other major central banks by adopting a zero interest rate policy, which will allow the U.S. dollar to recover ground against the euro. Against other currencies, the greenback should perform well throughout the year. Emerging market currencies will fare the worst during 2009 as falling commodity prices, an exodus of foreign investment and high levels of risk aversion conspire to push them lower against the greenback."

Commodity Markets to see Temporary Correction

"Leading world economies that are likely to find themselves in a recession include the U.S., the U.K., Japan and Europe, as well as several emerging market countries. The U.S. has been implementing solutions, but other nations have fallen behind the curve. However, the death of the automotive industry in the U.S. should be realized by this year, compelling Americans to accept that the U.S. is no longer a manufacturing nation," said Richard Yamarone, director of economic research, Argus Research Corporation. "In the commodity markets, declining prices are being driven by the reversal of the unsustainable commodity bubble of last summer. This is not a systemic decline but rather a temporary correction. One country that will benefit is Saudi Arabia, as the state can afford lower oil prices while its competitors—Venezuela, Iran, Russia, can not."

Dow Jones Industrial Average: -3.45%
