Intro

MSCI supplier code of conduct

This code of conduct:

  • Summarizes MSCI’s general principles for sourcing goods and services via third party suppliers or vendors (“Supplier(s)”)
  • Defines the conduct MSCI generally expects of its Suppliers

MSCI Global Procurement conducts business worldwide, managing MSCI’s Supplier relationships, including those involving financial market data, technology hardware, software applications, technology services, travel-related services, consultancy and other services.

MSCI is committed to acting in accordance with its core values and generally expects its Suppliers to exhibit a commitment to at least the same standards.  We are a signatory to the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative. 

MSCI realizes the importance of working with its Suppliers and the potential impact of their performance on our client relationships.

This code sets out our values and expectations, including our high level end to end (E2E) sourcing principles, as well as the labor, human rights, environmental, and legal compliance principles we generally expect our Suppliers to uphold.

Additionally, MSCI expects its Suppliers to live up to the spirit of this code. MSCI may request, and Supplier shall promptly furnish to MSCI, a self-assessment as to the Supplier’s adherence to the standards and principles of this code. Supplier compliance with this code of conduct may also be subject to audit by MSCI.
