Understanding the MSCI Market Classification Framework
Every June, MSCI communicates the conclusions of its Annual Market Classification Review which is based on criteria set forth in the MSCI Market Classification Framework: economic development, size and liquidity as well as market accessibility. MSCI Research also seeks input and validation from the investment community for this annual review.
MSCI invites you to a webinar where we will provide an overview of the MSCI Market Classification Framework and explain how various markets are categorized as Developed, Emerging or Frontier Markets. We will also discuss the evolution of market accessibility across Developed, Emerging and Frontier Markets. Finally, we will explain the rationale behind the outcome of the 2012 Annual Market Classification Review regarding Korea, Taiwan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
