On 20 June 2017, Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI), a widely tracked provider of global indices, announced its decision to add China’s local currency shares (A-shares) to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. MSCI will include around 222 large-cap Chinese equities in the index from June 2018, along with other international indices that cover Chinese stocks.

SMSFs not using Skaffold Global are missing the upside of global stocks because they do not invest offshore due to the perceived cumbersome and expensive process.
There has been a significant performance gap between the performance of the Australian market and the wider world in recent months. According to Rainmaker data, the ASX 300 accumulation index is up 24% in the 12 months to 30 August while the MSCI World Index is up 37%.
With so much growth coming from the SMSF sector, a number of online brokers and wealth management firms have moved to make access to overseas stocks easier, including Skaffold, which was set up by well-known professional stock-pickers Roger Montgomery, Russell Muldoon and Chris Batchelor, and marketer Vanessa Gilbert.
