Investment Strategy:

The KraneShares California Carbon Allowance Strategy ETF (KCCA) provides targeted exposure to the California Carbon Allowances (CCA) cap-and-trade carbon allowance program. KCCA is benchmarked to the IHS Markit Carbon CCA Index, which tracks the most traded CCA futures contracts. As a part of the KraneShares suite of carbon ETFs, KCCA provides a new vehicle for participating in the price of carbon and hedging risk while supporting responsible investing and ESG goals.

KCCA Features:

  • The CCA cap-and-trade program began in 2012, implemented by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and covers approximately 80% of the states Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. In 2014, the program was expanded to cover Quebec and its emissions1.
  • The program plans to reduce carbon levels to 60% of 1990 levels by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2045. The cap will reduce 4% per year to achieve this objective. Further, the program has a floor price that rises 5% plus inflation adjustment each year.1
  • CCA carbon allowances are among the fastest growing, strongest performing and diversifying asset classes. In 2021, CCA carbon allowance futures have traded around $1.5 billion per month.2, 3
  • Can provide potential portfolio diversification due to the historically low correlation to traditional asset classes.3, 4

By pairing KCCA with other KraneShares carbon funds, investors can customize their allocation to the global carbon credit market:

30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
