What are the benchmarks StashAway uses?

The portfolio returns on our website and app are benchmarked against the MSCI All Country World Index (MSCI ACWI) for equities and the FTSE World Government Bond Index for bonds.

These benchmarks apply for the following portfolios:

  • General Investing powered by StashAway
  • General Investing powered by BlackRock®
  • Responsible Investing

Like our General Investing and Responsible Investing portfolios, the MSCI ACWI includes exposure to equities in both developed markets (such as the US, Western Europe, Australia, and Japan) and emerging markets (such as China, Brazil, and India).
