MSCI news has meaningful, long-term implications

With the inclusion of China A-Shares in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, we see an incremental step in the opening of Chinese markets to offshore investors.

Ben Johnson: The big news in index land this week was the outcome of MSCI's annual index review. MSCI announced that, for the first time, it would be including China A-Shares in its Emerging Markets Index. Now China A-Shares are domestically listed, domestically traded Chinese stocks that previously have been mostly unavailable to foreign investors. Over time, what we've seen is that China has gradually opened up its capital markets via a number of different means. This is the most meaningful, incremental step yet we've seen to date in this gradual development of the opening of Chinese markets to offshore investors.
