MSCI has launched the MSCI World Core Infrastructure Index, which represents the performance of companies within the developed markets that are engaged in core industrial infrastructure. Core infrastructure assets have unique investment characteristics and this index gives investors a purer representation of the performance of
infrastructure. MSCI developed the World Core Infrastructure Index as a result of a recent client consultation that highlighted the need for a more granular understanding of the performance of the infrastructure sector.
The index is constructed by identifying securities that belong to a specific set of eligible sub-industries from the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®). The weight of each sub-industry is capped at 15% to provide more diversification and the weight of any security is capped at 5% to reduce concentration.
