Global index giant MSCI Inc. has announced which of China’s A-share companies will be included in some of its widely tracked equity indexes, a move that will result in billions of dollars of new inflows into Chinese mainland stocks.

A total of 234 A-share companies, which together account for 2.5% of the market capitalization of the A-share universe, will be added into the MSCI indexes on June 1. The A-shares will represent an aggregate weight of 0.39% in the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index and 1.26% in the MSCI China Index, according to a latest index review released by MSCI early Tuesday. After that, MSCI plans to increase both the number of A-share stocks in the indexes and boost their weight to 5%.
