    U.S. index provider MSCI is slated to decide later today, June 9th, whether to add Chinese-listed yuan-denominated shares to one of its key benchmarks.

    MSCI says the decision to include China's A shares in its Emerging Markets Index would draw 400 billion U.S. dollars to Chinese stocks over time.

    Firms including UBS, Invesco, Deutsche Bank, and Schroders have already secured special licenses to buy 'A' shares, denominated in yuan.

    MSCI deemed the A shares ineligible for its benchmarks a year ago due to the limitations to investing in the locally traded companies.

    FTSE Russell, MSCI's major rival, said last week it would not force funds tracking its emerging markets benchmark to move into 'A' shares, citing a lack of preparedness among many clients.

    For more on MSCI's potential decision and its implication on the Chinese markets, we are joined on the line by Gao Shang, analyst with Guantong Futures.
