Vodafone Idea shares have become qualified to be included in the MSCI Global Standard index in its August review, according to Nuvama Institutional Equities. The addition in the index is likely to attract $233 million inflows in Vodafone Idea shares.

Nuvama Equities has reaffirmed its May 2024 conviction names for MSCI Global Standard Index and MSCI Smallcap Index. 

“The May review will entail another action-packed rejig as we anticipate close to USD 2 billion inflow into India. The pre-emptive price action in most of the names are already factored in,” said the brokerage firm.

As of April 26, 2024, India’s weight in the MSCI Emerging Market Index stands at 18%, a significant leap from just 8% in early 2020. By the second half of 2024, Nuvama anticipates crossing the 20% threshold in the EM Index.

“This remarkable achievement can be attributed to multiple factors: I) India's standardized Foreign Ownership Limit (FOL) in 2020. II) Robust performance by Indian equities, particularly in the Midcap segment, leading to numerous inclusions in every review. III) Relative underperformance by other EM packs, especially China,” said Abhilash Pagaria of Nuvama Alternative & Quantitative Research.

With a consistent flow from domestic institutional investors (DII) and now if steady FII participation resumes, there is potential for India to surpass a 20% weight in the MSCI EM Index by the second half of 2024 itself, he added.

As of now, India’s stock count in the MSCI Standard Index/EM Index is 136, and it is anticipated to reach around 145 by the forthcoming May review. The official announcement will come on May 15, 2024.
