    Introduction

    This methodology book describes MSCIs general Index calculation methodology for the MSCI Equity Indices.

    MSCI provides two ways of calculating MSCI Equity Indices, either by using the Price Adjustment Factor (PAF) or the Index Divisors (Index Divisors methodology available as an appendix).

    These policies and guidelines affect all securities across the MSCI Equity Indices and products. Unless otherwise stated the policies and guidelines apply therefore to all securities in the MSCI Equity universe.

    Please note that the index construction methodology and other guiding principles for the MSCI Standard Indices can be found in MSCI Global Investable Market Indices Methodology Indices document, available at www.msci.com.

    MSCI Equity Indices

    The MSCI Equity Indices measure the performance of a set of equity securities over time. The MSCI Equity Indices are calculated using the Laspeyres concept of a weighted arithmetic average together with the concept of chain-linking.

    MSCI country and regional equity Indices are calculated in local currency as well as in USD, with price, gross and net returns.

    Index levels are also available in several other currencies such as AUD, BRL, CAD, CHF, CNY, EUR, GBP, HKD, INR, JPY, KRW, RUB and SGD.

    While the local currency series of regional indices cannot be replicated in the real world, it represents the theoretical performance of an index without any impact from foreign exchange fluctuations a continuously hedged portfolio.

    Indices are calculated 5 days a week, fr
