MSCI Emerging Markets Indices - Emerging Markets

By: Institutional Share Holder Svc  09-12-2011

Today the MSCI Emerging Markets Indices cover over 2,700 securities in 21 markets that are currently classified as EM countries. The EM equity universe spans large, mid and small cap securities and can be segmented across styles and sectors.

MSCI regularly reviews the market classification of all countries included (or under consideration for inclusion) in its global equity universe based on extensive discussions with the investment community. Using the MSCI Market Classification Framework, MSCI examines each country’s economic development, size, liquidity and market accessibility in order to be classified in a given investment universe. Each June, MSCI communicates its conclusions on the list of countries under review and announces the new list of countries, if any, under review for potential market reclassification in the upcoming cycle.
