Emerging market equity indices advanced towards the end of the second quarter, excelling past larger cap international counterparts. Companies within emerging economies reacted negatively to Britain’s vote to leave the EU as the question of what contracts and employment agreements may become null once the exit occurs.

A broadly used and recognized index of emerging countries, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, declined to include Chinese stocks in its broad array of emerging market equities. The reason cited was the continued difficulty of getting money in and out of the country without limits, a prerequisite for inclusion into the index.
