The WSAS Microfinance Institutions Shareholder Value Indexes
The WSAS MFI Shareholder Value Indexes(WSAS MFI SVIX) - are uniquely consistent measures of changes over time in the value of shareholders’ investments in the equity of a broad sample of microfinance institutions (MFIs). No other such measures exist.
As investors’ interest in microfinance in developing countries grows, the WSAS MFI SVIX plays invaluable roles in providing a history of changes to financial value of equity investments in this nascent asset category, to which investors, their advisors, investment bankers and other researchers can look for benchmarking and analytic purposes.
The WSAS SVIX Indexes consist of a series of annual ‘Vintage Indexes’ (indexes measuring changes to shareholders’ value, by year of inception of their investment in a set of MFIs), and a Composite Index (blending investment results across the annual Vintages).

As more MFIs seek equity from public markets, the issue of incorporating stock prices into the WSAS MFI SVIX series will become more important.
