Fourth time the charm?

For the fourth year in a row, index provider MSCI will debate whether or not to include China’s A-shares in their global equity indices at its annual review on 20 June. After a stabilisation in the market and a significant increase in accessibility, we assign a greater-than-even chance that MSCI will decide in favour of inclusion.
