Iindexes, portfolio risk and performance analytics and corporate governance services, proposes to allow early inclusions of companies with Initial Public Offerings ( IPOs ) that are of significant size to the MSCI Overseas China Index in order to better reflect the investment opportunity set for the MSCI Overseas China Index.

The proposal would allow for early inclusion of IPOs outside of Index Reviews and early inclusion of IPOs during Index Reviews.
