MSCI Indices

The indexes provide exhaustive equity market coverage for over 75 countries in the developed, emerging and frontier markets while applying a consistent index construction and maintenance methodology. This methodology allows for meaningful global views and cross regional comparisons across all market capitalization size, sector and style segments, and combinations.

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 indexes in 1969.
  • Consistent methodology for every market. Where other providers use either a long- or short-term liquidity measure to assess the eligibility of stocks for their indexes, 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 indexes through the use of size and liquidity screens.
  • All of MSCI’s indexes 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.
