DEGRADED! Finance director reveals sorry truth behind index exit for publication immortalised by dead Beatle

Schroders, the fund management group, is likely to have missed out on promotion to the FTSE 100 last week because the wrong figures were used to calculate its market capitalisation.

Changes are based primarily on market value, with companies ranked 110th or below ejected from the index and FTSE 250 companies ranked in 90th position or above promoted.
