The MSCI China Index was launched on 31 October 1995, some seven years after the launch of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. From March 2001 to March 2018, the MSCI China Index generated annualised total returns of 12.2% versus 6% for the MSCI World Index and 10.7% annual returns for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

More recently, Chinese stocks have been strong relative performers. In 2017, the MSCI China Index surged 54.1%, while the MSCI World Index advanced 22.4%.

Chinese stocks' strong absolute and relative performance has come with a heaped helping of volatility. The MSCI China Index has experienced much greater than the MSCI World Index.
