Logo usage table

  • Correct use of the logo

    Clear space must be kept around the logo to maintain brand integrity.

    The clear space on all sides is the inner square of the mark as seen on the left-hand side.

  • Using the MSCI corporate logo with third-party logos

    In instances where MSCI is a partner, sponsor or collaborator with other organizations, it’s important to ensure all of the logos are of equal size and weighting, with clear exclusion zones between them.

    For advice regarding third-party co-branding, please contact MSCI Marketing for more information.

    All instances of third-party co-branding using the MSCI corporate logo must be approved by MSCI Marketing.

  • The MSCI partner logo

    The MSCI corporate logo may be used in conjunction with the logos of external organizations in co-branded applications.

    Co-branding with a partner organization implies an equal relationship, therefore the logos of MSCI and the partner organization should appear to be equal.

    There is a specific version of the MSCI corporate logo for use in these instances, known as the MSCI partner logo.

    It incorporates a vertical rule to separate the MSCI corporate logo from the logo of the partner organization.

    Exclusion zone

    As with the exclusion zone for the MSCI corporate logo, the height of the MSCI letters in the logo are used to calculate the exclusion zone between the MSCI partner logo and any partner logo it is paired with.
