Rise of Market Concentration

Rise of Market Concentration

 

Market concentration, on the rise since the 2010s in most equity markets, markedly accelerated during the pandemic. For example, the largest five issuers in the MSCI Emerging Markets and MSCI World Indexes reached a collective weight of 23.8% and 12.8%, respectively — significantly above the previous peaks, during the dot-com bubble.
