3MTD, formerly labeled QTD, represents the index's cumulative return from 3-month prior end date to current date.
The IMI, Large, Mid, SMID, Micro Cap, Small + Micro Cap, All Cap, EM, FM and ACWI Small Cap Indexes and their corresponding Value and Growth Indexes, together with the Provisional Standard, DM Provisional Small Cap and DM Small Cap Value and Growth Indexes are all based on the MSCI Global Investable Market Indexes Methodology
DM and EM Standard Indexes and their respective Value and Growth Indexes, as well as DM Small Cap Indexes followed the MSCI Standard Index Methodology based on a sampling approach until June 2007, when they began to be transitioned to their respective Provisional Indexes in two phases (November 2007 and May 2008). Since June 2008, these indexes are also based on the MSCI Global Investable Market Indexes Methodology. MSCI Euro and MSCI Pan Euro Indexes, which were subsets of MSCI EMU and MSCI Europe Indexes respectively, transitioned in one phase as of the close of November 30, 2007, to the MSCI EMU Large Cap and MSCI Europe Large Cap Indexes, respectively. MSCI Provisional Indexes were maintained during the transition to the MSCI Global Investable Market Indexes Methodology from June 2007 to May 2008. The ongoing calculation of these indexes was discontinued on June 30, 2008. Historical index levels for these provisional indexes continue to be posted to provide access to their back-calculated history.
