World stocks - World stock markets in 2022 closed lower as inflation and higher interest rates took their toll. Also, Russia's invasion of Ukraine in early 2022 caused an energy crisis in Europe and pushed world oil and gas prices higher, thus undercutting the global economy. The MSCI World Index, a benchmark for large companies based in 23 developed countries, fell by -19.5%, reversing most of the +20.1% gain seen in 2021.

Small-Capitalization Stocks - The MSCI World Small-Cap Index, which tracks companies with market caps between $200 million and $1.5 billion, fell by -20.1% in 2022, more than reversing the +14.4% gain seen in 2021. The MSCI World Small-Cap Index in 2022 slightly underperformed the -19.5% decline in the large-cap MSCI World Index. Small caps in 2022 under-performed the large-caps for the second straight year and have now underperformed large-caps in four of the last five years.

World Industry Groups - All but one of the ten MSCI industry groups fell in 2022. The Energy sector was the only sector with a gain, rising +41.1% and adding to 2021's gain of +35.1%. The ranked returns of the other sectors are as follows: Health Care (-6.6%), Utilities (-7.0%), Consumer Staples (-8.0%), Financials (-12.4%), Materials (-13.7%), Industrials (-14.6%), Information Technology (-31.3%), Consumer Discretionary (-34.0%), and Telecom (-37.6%).

Emerging markets - The MSCI Emerging Markets Free Index, which tracks companies based in 26 emerging countries, fell by -22.4% in 2022, adding to the -4.6% decline seen in 2021. The -22.4% decline in emerging market stocks seen in 2022 was just mildly worse than the -19.5% decline seen in the MSCI World Index.

G7 - The G7 stock markets in 2022 all closed lower except for the UK. The UK FTSE 100 index closed slightly higher by +0.9% in 2022. The U.S. S&P 500 index showed the largest decline, falling -19.4%. The ranked returns of the other G-7 countries were as follows: Canada's Toronto Composite index (-8.7%), Japan's Nikkei Index (-9.4%), French CAC-40 (-9.5%), German Dax index (-12.3%), and Italy's MIB index (-13.3%).

North America - In North America, the U.S. S&P 500 index in 2022 showed the largest decline by falling -19.4%. Canada's Toronto Composite index fell by -8.7%, and Mexico's Bolsa index fell by -9.0%.

Europe - European stocks in 2022 showed weakness due to rising interest rates and the energy crisis caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The ranked European returns in 2022 were as follows: UK FTSE 100 index +0.9%, Spanish IBEX 35 index -5.6%, French CAC-40 index -9.5%, German Dax index -12.3%, and Italian MIB index -13.3%.
