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.

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 - 9:00 a.m. EST / 2:00 p.m. BST / 5:00 p.m. GST

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.
