World rebounds in 2012 – MSCI data

Most country and regional indices rebounded in 2012 after a poor 2011, according to data from MSCI covering both developed and emerging markets.

Nearly the entire range of country and regional MSCI Developed Markets (DM) Indices delivered strong positive returns for 2012, the index provider said.

The two main MSCI developed market flagship indices – the MSCI World Index and MSCI EAFE – returned 13.00% and 13.96%, respectively, while even higher returns prevailed in many European countries and regions.

The MSCI emerging markets indices posted a slightly wider range of positive results relative to developed markets, while frontier markets indices produced the most widely dispersed results for 2012.
