You are cordially invited to the AmCham Shanghai FSC Committee – The MSCI China A Share Index and the Potential Impact from the Decision to Increase the China A Shares Weights in the MSCI Global Benchmarks on Friday, March 22 from 12:00 to 1:30pm at the AmCham Shanghai Conference Center.

This discussion would be of interest to individual and institutional investors and market watchers interested in the Chinese A share market and the impact of increasing the Chinese A share weighting within MSCI's indexes.

The MSCI China A Index captures large and mid-cap representation across China securities listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen exchanges. The index is designed for international investors and is calculated using China A Stock Connect listings based on the offshore RMB exchange rate (CNH).

MSCI has announced that it will increase the weight of China A shares in the MSCI Indexes by increasing the inclusion factor from its initial level of 5% to 20% in three steps. This decision follows an extensive global consultation with a large number of international institutional investors, including asset owners, asset managers, broker/dealers and other market participants worldwide. The proposal to increase the weight of China A shares garnered overwhelming support from investors.

Join us with Theodore Niggli, Managing Director and Head of the MSCI Index Products in APAC for an informative session where he will share his insights on the following topics:

  1. How do foreign investors evaluate China equity markets
  2. Various investment strategies chosen so far by foreign investors
  3. How prepared are the foreign and domestic asset managers to service foreign investors' needs
