Global index giant MSCI Inc. will delay the transition of the MSCI All China Indexes to the MSCI China All Shares Indexes for about six months, in order to offer market participants more time to prepare for the transition, said Caixin.
MSCI will delay the transition date from June 1 to November 26, in order to “provide additional time for implementation,” it said in an announcement. As part of the transition, the MSCI All China Indexes will be discontinued on November 27.
The transition aims to align two index methodologies with similar objectives that cover China-related shares and discontinue MSCI All China Indexes that are based on multiple methodologies, MSCI said in a proposal released in January 2018.
