    nearly three times greater than that of...

    Hello everyone,


    Does the underlined below mean XXX is nearly four times that of....?
    I need a confirmation.

    Thanks in advance.

    Global challengers have generated long-term value for their shareholders.Over the past 12 years, they have outperformed the S&P 500, the MSCI Emerging Market Index, and their global peers (multinationals from the same industry and based in a mature market).Their average annual TSR of 17.3% is nearly 3 times greater than that of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The average annual TSR of the S&P 500 and global peers, by comparison, is negligible.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I have added the context.

    Raymott's comment is still relevant.
