MSCI unveils China A 50 Index

Chinese lanternsMSCI has launched the MSCI China A 50 Index, a tradable proxy for the broader MSCI China A Index. 

The new index is composed of the largest 50 constituents of the flagship parent index ranked by domestic free float-adjusted market capitalization. This means the index includes the largest Shanghai and Shenzhen-listed A shares.

Designed for reduced turnover, MSCI says the index remains closely correlated to its parent index and shares the same quarterly rebalancing schedule with a majority of the MSCI global index families.
