IMAS Lunchtime Talk Series: “A” Opening to the Great Wall : Implications of China’s Changing Equity Landscape

In an extreme hypothetical scenario, if the QFII scheme were to be abolished and all access barriers were removed, the China A-share market would comprise about 14% of the MSCI Emerging Markets (EM) Index. This would increase China’s total EM market weight from 18% to close to 30%.As the A-share market continues its path to liberalization, China’s importance in a global emerging markets portfolio is likely to rise. Investors who are not well prepared could be caught short in the process.

MSCI presents a detailed assessment on the current liberalization trends and factors that can impact China future weight within broad market indices.
