Morgan Stanley Capital International is an American finance company headquartered in New York City and serving as a global provider of equity, fixed income, hedge fund stock market indexes, multi-asset portfolio analysis tools and ESG products. It publishes the MSCI BRIC, MSCI World and MSCI EAFE Indexes.
In 2018, MSCI announced it would begin including mainland Chinese "A" shares in its emerging markets index. The decision, reportedly made under the pressure of the Chinese government, with MSCI denying the existence of any political factors behind it, was controversial because many Chinese companies refuse to permit the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board to inspect their financial records.
The company is currently headquartered at 7 World Trade Center in Manhattan, New York City, U.S.
