The Wealth Management Association (WMA), a UK-based trade association representing wealth and investment firms managing £760 billion, has selected MSCI to act as the sole authorised provider of its Private Investor Index Series, starting on 1 March, 2017. This series consists of five composite indices designed to represent the weightings and show returns of selected multi-asset-class strategies, determined by the WMA Private Investor Indices Committee: The indices include weightings of equities, bonds, real estate, "cash" and "alternative" investments in proportions that reflect the longer-term objectives for each strategy. The weightings are determined by the WMA Private Indices Committee, which is responsible for regularly surveying WMA members and reflecting in each index the industry's collective view for each strategy objective. The index weightings are updated when the Committee determines that strategy changes across the industry warrant a review.
