Join the Morningstar Open Indexes Project

When Investors Win, We All Win

The goal of the Morningstar Open Indexes Project is to lower the cost of equity indexes and improve outcomes for all investors.

We believe that investment performance measurement should be reliable, transparent, and accessible. As part of the Open Indexes Project, we’re delivering our equity indexes for benchmarking purposes – for free. 

Participants will receive price return, total return, net return, and month-end constituent data from the 100+ global equity indexes included in the project. See how our indexes correlate with standard benchmarks and how we compare with other index providers.

We have expanded the Open Indexes Project. Through a strategic collaboration with Euronext, Morningstar has added two new indexes to the Open Indexes Project; including the Morningstar Eurozone 50 Index and the Morningstar Developed Europe 100.
