MSCI Inc., a leading provider of investment decision support tools worldwide, announced today that it will consult with the Hong Kong investment community on a proposal to construct a series of equity indices designed to reflect the investment restrictions, guidelines and regulations specific to the local Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF).

“We believe that the development of an MSCI series of indices reflecting the MPF investment guidelines will bring more choice to the market,” said Theodore Niggli, Head of the MSCI Index Business in Asia Pacific. “It will also enable more rigorous performance benchmarking, and offer MPF scheme providers and managers a broader and more diverse set of benchmark options for index tracking and actively managed funds, at a time when they are re-thinking their current offering.”
