World Stocks - World stock markets in 2021 closed generally higher. The MSCI World Index, a benchmark for large companies based in 23 developed countries, closed +20.1%, adding to the +14.1% gain seen in 2020 and the +25.2% gain seen in 2019. Despite the continued economic damage from the pandemic, world stocks rallied in 2021 due to the stimulative monetary and fiscal policies launched by governments worldwide to address the pandemic.

Small-Capitalization Stocks - The MSCI World Small-Cap Index, which tracks companies with market caps between $200 million and $1.5 billion, rose by +14.4% in 2021 for the third consecutive yearly gain. The +14.4% rise in the MSCI World Small-Cap Index in 2021 underperformed the +20.1% gain seen in the large-cap MSCI World Index. Small caps in 2021 under-performed the large-caps after the slight outperformance seen in 2020.

Emerging Markets - The MSCI Emerging Markets Free Index, which tracks companies based in 26 emerging countries, fell by -4.6% in 2021, giving back part of the +15.8% gain seen in 2020.

G7 - The G7 stock markets in 2021 all closed higher. The leader was the French CAC-40 index with a gain of +28.9%, followed closed by a +26.9% gain in the U.S. S&P 500 index, a +23.0% gain in Italy's MIB index, and a +21.7% gain in Canada's Toronto Composite index.
