MSCI Emerging Markets Webinar Series 2020 (APAC)
Over the last three decades, Emerging Markets (EM) have gone from a peripheral investment to a cornerstone of investors’ equity portfolio. This webinar series will explore the MSCI EM Index and EM market dynamics as an essential part of a long-term play to investors.
Sign up for this series of three webinars to get a full picture of MSCI research insights in the important topic of EM investing.
Part I - Established as Core
EM’s weight in MSCI ACWI index rose from 0.9% in Jan 1987 to 12% in Jun 2020. EM continued to be characterized by its exposure to unique growth opportunities, significant dispersion of country performances, as well as the historical factor/ESG premium.
Part II - Characterized by Dynamism
The ongoing capital markets liberalization and improving market accessibility in Emerging Markets are causing a rethink of the future of equity investing. EM’s growing economic size and technological significance are among the biggest forces shaping the global economic landscape. As a result, grasping the dynamism of Emerging Markets, specifically, the speed and path of A shares inclusion, and the configuration and implementation of China in equity portfolios is crucial to sound asset allocation decisions.
Part III - Built to Last
Sep 17, 2020 - 11:00am HKT / 12:00pm JST / 1:00pm AEST
The MSCI Emerging Markets (EM) index outperformed MSCI World Index during the past 30+ years as EM’s share of global economic output steadily rose. Constructed based on the MSCI Global Investable Market Indexes (GIMI) Methodology, the same framework used for the MSCI ACWI Index families, MSCI Emerging Market index is designed to dynamically reflect the evolution of the emerging markets opportunity set and to meet investors’ global and regional asset allocation needs.
