Kuwait: MSCI EM inclusion should give Boursa ‘massive boost’
Global index compiler MSCI Inc on 25 June said it would upgrade Kuwaiti equities – currently limited to the MSCI Kuwait index – to its main emerging markets index in 2020.

The Kuwaiti market has already outperformed its regional peers this year in anticipation of the MSCI move.
