The MSCI ACWI refers to the global stock index compiled by the company MSCI. The acronym ACWI is "All Countries World Index". The MSCI ACWI has broader coverage than the MSCI World Index, and includes components of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. Increasingly global equity mandates are being managed to the broader MSCI ACWI index due to the increasing importance of emerging markets, and higher expected economic growth rates. Over time it is likely that the MSCI ACWI will include greater influence from emerging markets.
