MSCI have just released a consultation on EU Benchmark Regulation in relation to the MSCI Asset-based and Fund-based Real Estate Indexes. AREF intends to respond to this consultation.
Their current proposal is as follows:
“MSCI proposes not to seek authorization in the EU as a benchmark administrator for the MSCI asset-based and fund-based real estate indexes at this time, and to restrict usage of these indexes and benchmarks to non-regulated uses.”
This may have an effect on the  AREF/ IPD Quarterly Property Fund Index.
The deadline for the responding to the consultation is the 18th May.
A document describing MSCI’s proposal and considerations is available on the MSCI website here
The presentation from this meeting is available here.
