The MSCI Economic Exposure Security Data modules provide geographic revenue breakdowns by country and by region for each large and mid cap stock included in MSCI ACWI. Historical revenue exposures for all constituents of MSCI ACWI are also available back to fiscal year 2005. This security-level data is designed to enhance and support portfolio management, portfolio construction and risk management investment processes. With the continued integration of world markets, companies are increasingly exposed to economic activity beyond their domestic borders. Understanding the geographic distribution of company revenues — both current and historical — in this global context can significantly enhance the investment decision processes for constructing, analyzing and managing portfolios. The MSCI Economic Exposure Security Data and Extended Security Data modules apply a simple and transparent method for quantifying a firm’s economic exposure to the range of countries and regions that generate its revenues. This approach is reliable and consistent, despite significant disparities in the way companies report their revenues across geographic segments. MSCI essentially breaks out each stock’s reported revenues into country-by-country estimates. Clients can then examine an equity portfolio and determine its economic exposure by aggregating the revenues of its constituents at a country or regional level.
