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 impact investment 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.1
  • Provides potential hedge against inflation through a price floor that is pegged to inflation rates, i.e., the price floor rises 5% plus Consumer Price Index (CPI).1
  • California 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:
