This month the main German stock index, the Dax, will increase its number of members from 30 to 40, the same ones that the French Cac and the Italian FTSE already have.

On the contrary, in Spain, there are no plans to apply an expansion similar to the Ibex despite the fact that nine out of ten analysts defend the advantages of breaking its current limit of 35 components. Not for nothing are there very strong arguments in favor of enlargement.

An Ibex 40 would present greater diversification and would cease to be so marked by the burden compared to its peers that it supposes the current great weight of sectors such as financial. But, above all, if the Spanish selective left behind the design that it has maintained since 1992, it would be more representative of the current reality of the Spanish economy thanks to the entry of companies such as Rovi, Logista or Sacyr.
