The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), together with the European Commission (EC), MSCI, and NASDAQ Baltics are excited to announce an online workshop titled “MSCI – Changes to investment ratings methodology – Ramifications for European Capital Markets” related to the introduction of the MSCI Baltic Index.
The new single index will allow the three markets to be integrated into the MSCI universe, bring the three Baltic markets closer to a true pan-Baltic capital market, and will raise the profile of the region amongst international investors who track MSCI indices. We are extremely proud to have supported this milestone initiative, which is the result of strong collaboration between the EBRD, the European Commission, Nasdaq Baltic and the Ministries of Finance of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
The creation of this index is an extremely positive step and we would be thrilled to answer any questions you might have, including: What does the MSCI Baltic Index mean for Baltics capital markets? How has the pan-Baltic capital market initiative started and who has been involved? What are the takeaways for other smaller capital markets in Europe? What does this milestone mean in the context of the EU Capital Markets Union?
The workshop will include Speakers who made a major contribution to making this achievement a reality: Kaarel Ots (CEO, Nasdaq Tallinn), Jim Turnbull (Deputy Director, Capital and Financial Markets Development, EBRD), Laura Rinaldi (Head of Unit, DG REFORM, European Commission), Agnes Le Thiec (Deputy Head of Unit, DG FISMA, European Commission), Neil Acres (Global Head, Government and Regulatory Affairs, MSCI), Jean-Maurice Ladure (Head of Applied Research EMEA, MSCI) and Alexander Pivovarsky (EBRD, Director, Capital and Financial Markets Development).
The online workshop will take place on 4 October (10:00 – 11:15 AM CET).
