Features & Benefits

What you get with MSCI Indices 

  • MSCI has been at the forefront of index construction and maintenance for more than 40 years, launching its first global equity indices in 1969.
  • Consistent methodology for every market - Where other providers use either a long-term or short-term liquidity measure to assess the eligibility of stocks for their indices, MSCI uses both, recognizing the differences in liquidity between developed and emerging markets and enhancing the investability and replicability of their indexes. MSCI puts strong emphasis on investability and replicability of its indices through the use of size and liquidity screens.
  • All of MSCI’s indices are created using the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®), an industry classification system developed by MSCI and S&P Global, which provides a common framework to classify stocks. They offer exhaustive coverage of the investable opportunity set with non-overlapping size and style segmentation.
  • Full suite of market cap, factor, strategy, thematic, ESG, real estate, fixed income and custom indices.
