MSCI Plans to Increase China A-Share Exposure

March 22, 2019 | David Hernandez, CFA, Senior Research Analyst, Non-U.S. Equities

After several years of consideration, in May 2018 MSCI added a small portion of the China A-share market to its Emerging Markets Equity Index using a 5% inclusion factor. After additional consultation following that successful implementation, MSCI recently announced plans to further increase the inclusion factor to 20% in three steps, with the final step occurring in November 2019.

This newsletter explains MSCI’s considerations in increasing the inclusion factor and the process the index will undergo in the next nine months to implement the increase, as well as an explanation of what an A-share is and what their future may hold for investors.
