In 1968, the Capital International Indices which covered global stock market indexes for non-U.S. markets were published. In 1986, Morgan Stanley licensed the rights to the indexes from Capital International. It branded the indexes as the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) indexes. By the 1980s, the MSCI indexes were the primary benchmark indexes outside of the US before being joined by FTSE, Citibank and Standard & Poor's. After Dow Jones started float weighting its index funds, MSCI followed.

In 2004, MSCI acquired Barra, Inc., to form MSCI Barra. The company is headquartered in New York City.

The company used eight factors in developing its indexes: momentum, volatility, value, size, growth, size nonlinearity, liquidity and financial leverage.

The MSCI global equity indexes have been calculated since 1969 and include MSCI World and MSCI EAFE.

In mid-2007, parent company Morgan Stanley decided to divest from, and perhaps spin off, MSCI.[7] This was followed by an initial public offering of a minority of stock in November 2007. The divestment was completed in 2009.

MSCI formally acquired both RiskMetrics Group, Inc. and Measurisk in 2010, Investment Property Databank in 2012. and Investor Force from ICG Group (formerly Internet Capital Group) in 2013. In August 2014, MSCI acquired GMI Ratings.
