An Overview of the KraneShares Zacks New China ETF (ticker: KFYP) and Potential Opportunities in the "New China" Economy

China’s economy continues to experience tremendous growth even as it shifts focus from manufacturing to domestic consumption. KFYP aims to provide investors an “all China” exposure to the “new China” sectors of the economy, while at the same time limiting exposure to manufacturing, financials, industrials and heavy materials that defined China’s past economic plans.

Join KraneShares' investment professionals, Mark Schlarbaum, Managing Partner, and Brendan Ahern, Chief Investment Officer, as they discuss:

  • China's Five Year Plan, and its importance in determining the direction of the "New China" economy.
  • Potential advantages of an "all China" exposure to stocks listed in the Mainland, Hong Kong and United States.
  • An overview of the KraneShares Zacks New China ETF (ticker: KFYP)
When: Wednesday, August 03,
11:00am – 12:00pm EST
