The table below lists the current & historical price-earnings (P/E) ratio of the global stock market. The ratio is calculated using an index of 3,000 public companies around the world based in 49 different countries. At the moment, the trailing P/E ratio of the global equity market is 16.19 (12/31/2022). The current multiple is lower than the 30-year average price-to-earnings ratio which might indicate that the global equity market as a whole is currently underpriced. The trailing P/E of the MSCI ACWI index (MSCI’s All Country World Index that is calculated using a slightly different set of companies that we are using) is 16.32 (12/31/2022).
