What does MSCI mean, as shown with a lot of international ETFs?

Morgan Stanley Capital International - MSCI

What does it Mean? A series of indexes constructed by Morgan Stanley to help institutional investors benchmark their returns. These indexes are also used for investment purposes - in the form of exchanged-traded funds - by all types of investors. There are a wide range of indexes created by Morgan Stanely covering a wide range of developed and emerging economies and a wide range of economic sectors.

Investopedia Says... Most of these indexes can be purchased through iShares by institutional and retail investors around the world.

In providing benchmarks for institutional investors such as mutual funds and hedge funds, MSCI offers region- and sector-specific indexes that may be more relevant compared to a large market index such as the S&P 500. For example, a more appropriate index for a mutual fund that invests in small-cap stocks in the U.S. would be the 'MSCI US Small Cap 1750 Index' instead of the S&P 500.
