MSCI indexes are some of the world’s most widely tracked benchmarks and linked to more than USD 16.3 trillion in AUM. The indexes also serve as the basis for over 1,300 Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). The massive amount of capital benchmarked against MSCI indexes and the improved tradability of index-based products via ETFs has led to an increased need for futures and options. MSCI derivatives help managers facilitate in and outflows of funds, hedge existing equity exposure and enhance portfolio performance.
