via my friend Brendan Ahearn of KraneShares, my go-to authority on all things China and stock markets:
On Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 PM EST global index provider, MSCI, announced they will include Mainland Chinese equities (A-shares) tracked by the MSCI China A International Index to their Global Standard Indexes starting in May 2018. These indexes include the MSCI Emerging Markets, AC Asia Ex Japan, and ACWI Indexes. We believe this historic news will have far reaching implications for global investors in the years to come.
